Ah, yes...I remember that. (Although---I thought it was the Dr. Seuss
parody, not the Good Times virus. Memory's disintegrating, I guess.)
Arlen had a bad hair day and wrote a rather testy response and then the
roof fell in on him. Everybody wasted major bandwidth for several days,
taking sides and getting more and more irritable. I'm glad we are now
reacting with a bit more humor and understanding.
My take on the whole issue was (and still is):
@@@@@@@@ <------- tempest
\\_! @ !_ _
\ @ ! / <------ teapot
I -do- think it would be a kindness to new folks to list a few of the
more common PerennialReposts in the Welcome message, though. It might
prevent a few embarrassed blushes.
