Now *this* is totally uncalled for.

Whether Michele has issues with another woman's looks or not is
absolutely not your place to say, and I find your comments far more
offensive than anything Amanda, Michele, or anyone else on this list
has said.

Judging by the huge amount of traffic Amanda's comment generated, a
good number of people *didn't* understand what she meant. That's what
happens when you use a contextless medium to express a very contextual

But it doesn't take comprehension of context to see that your words
are very insulting and denigrating to--well, hell, I was gonna say "to
Michele," but they're just insulting, period.

I hereby mention Hitler, just so we can invoke Godwin's Law and bury
this thread once and for all.
