Please, let's stop this! Why do we use words like "HUGE" to indicate the
STC influence? Isn't this an international newsgroup? The world does not
revolve around the STC. Travel to England (The home of the English

who have never heard of the STC.
Obviously, the STC should have its say, but no more than anyone else.
