Come on people...get off it!

Nobody is trying to make a buck off this, so cancel the macho, cancel the
adrenaline, and cancel the competitiveness. Save it for the business
world or the office (if you still have one!)

If we can't participate in the free exchange of ideas on this forum (or
its derivative such as the WWW or whatever) where can we participate?

First, lighten up, then try expending energies where they will do the
most good. We're in this together (or SHOULD be)...nobody is trying to
grab a dollar off the table, so just relax, read, and ruminate.
