Posting opposing viewpoints for purposes of ongoing discussion is trolling?
I had no idea... Never did it, probably won't, but I'll keep it in mind,
just in case my evil twin shows up :)
Just as an FYI, I have a work email and a home email, I regularly post from
work. I don't subscribe from two addresses for any hidden reason... just
so's I can keep up when I leave the cubicle farm.
I'm so glad I had my lesson in netiquette today. I think I feel chagrined,
but that could be the other personality...

It might look odd, sound odd, and even illustrate whether I've taken my meds

Sorry but I can't let that one go.
If we can identify the fact you are the same person posting contrary posts
two addresses then you should be exposed for what you are.
Wheter from multiple addresses or the same, keeping debate going by posting
contrary contradicting opinion is unprofessional and TROLLING. This list is
supposed to be professional exchanging ideas not a sandbox in which to play
If you do do it and are found out, I hope the more intelligent readers of
list will recognise that at that point your credibility and opinion on-list
