Tom Stuckert's message was certainly a stinger!

As a list member I felt ashamed that the list's responses drove Tom to reply
the way he did. No, I don't think the established practise of sleeping on it
before responding would have lessened his ire.

Yes, there were a couple of dopey messages posted (ie: big boned ladies),
but that's pretty typical of some from that age group. Our responses
generally were a tad, shall we say, melodramatic. May I assume there are
some closet Mills & Boones authors masquerading as TechWhirlers?

Let's not kid ourselves TechWhirlers: being well educated, worldly, and
(questionably) wise doesn't mean acting in an imperious fashion. My hope is
that potential TechWhirlers haven't been scared off by those who,
supposedly, should know better.


P.S. I've cc'd this response directly to Tom, seeing he's no longer a
participant of our 'high-brow' list.
