My phrasing was bad. I do understand why some people may have thought this
to be inappropriate. However, I really hate to see Amanda (who I know has
been on this list for quite some time) get pummeled by everyone for asking a
question that she obviously had a concern about. I think this discourages
people from posting questions in the future and dissolves the purpose of the
list. I don't think people should be scared to post to this list for the
fear of nasty remarks. Although I agree that the post was OT, a simple
"this is off topic" would have done the job I think.
No worries, I'll quit on this thread. My point was poorly communicated in
my last post and I just wanted to clear that up.
