Sorry, Antonio. If that read like I was singling you out for anything,
it certainly wasn't my intention and I apologise. I just meant "can we
(as in all of us) dial back on the intensity of the profanity".

I don't disagree with what the OP said (Res I think?), nor even how
he/she said it. It was, after all, an immediately and perfectly
understood message. But that kind of chatter gets ugly fast in places
like this, and this list already has a burden to carry, y'know?
