Beats me, Dick. Either few people read my posts/responses or I fail to inspire
vituperation. Now, while all the little people scuttle off to their
I will usually limit my off-list comments to either "Me, too" or some sort of
compliment for something the poster wrote. I'll respond onlist if I feel I can
usefully address something in a topic that I haven't already seen, especially
if I disagree. (Whether I actually add to a topic is for others to determine.)
So far, and I hardly read every post here, I haven't seen you write anything
inflamatory, and I hope you will continue providing your honest commentary to
the list. I don't know what's up with those people who don't want you to
respond, either onlist or offlist.
BTW, you've always been nice to me offlist, so again, I don't know what others'
beefs may be.
