Unh unh! I totally disagree! I was gonna stay outta here, but I don't
feel you were at all justified in the diatribe you posted. If you
felt you hadda share your "experience" then you could simply have
posted a note stating so, and people could have contact you directly.
Simply because Ross was a gentleman in his respone in no way rubs off
and makes *you* a gentleman (or woman, as the case may be).

And, by the way, why are you still anonymous (even after Eric
specifically pointed this out)?
