Here's an example of "glittering generalities". Paul, you seem to
disregard to list's own format of bottom posting when replying, rather
than top posting. Yet, you wrote of: "those unwilling to change and
adapt will receive the many years of due frustration they so fervently
beg for." with the emphasis on your "certainty". 

hrmmmm.... do I disregard such an argument out of hand, as having no
substance, when the poster seems unwilling to follow conventions printed
in the list rules of conduct, while blaming some for the same sort of
lack of respect for others? Can't have it both ways. Not always, Ric
