Lori, I'm with you. I know some people pay for mail by the byte (or
something like that) but I always considered this forum to be a means of
disseminating a wide variety of technical writing related information.
One person's pearl is another's putresence. What distinguishes us from
swine is that we can discern what is pallitable to us and what is not
(actully everything is pallitable to hogs).
We should each be afforded the opportunity to rut through and savor our own
particular information delicacies.
