I have to agree with Luc here, and I note that many other people have asked for the same thing: less arguing back and forth, especially when it has become painfully and obviously clear to everyone that neither side is really going to change their views here. It is a waste of bandwidth, really, and I have concluded that I was wrong to participate in these arguments... especially when I KNOW that I am right and that no amount of reasoning will convince Rui And Company to see the light. <grin/wink>

Our community (as in, many many members of this list) has asked us the debaters to keep the on-list advocacy to a reasonable level and try to keep the signal-to-noise ratio to an acceptable level. I hereby accept that and will join the crowd in asking those who just can't keep their itchy fingers off that "Send" button: keep it down, or take the arguments off-list, OK? It's clear that the rest of this list doesn't want to hear them at such great length.

I'll bite my tongue on-list as best I can. Hopefully others will do the same.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

May you never find yourself without a towel.
