Wow, I sure know what you're talking about! I considered writing a
particularly provocative message to the list the other day (about Canadian
health care, grammar, or some such rot). Fortunately, I received so many
flames before I composed the message that I chickened out. I also received a
nasty note about this message from the Department of Redundancy Department,
but Arlen decided not to actually write the note after reading this
acknowledgment of it.
BTW, if you've already responded to this message, don't bother reading it.
