Hi Nathan.

I was not sniping at every single announcement, I asked a question 
because I did not understand.  I wanted it explained to me, so I would 
understand.  And actually it was explained to me, off list.  So I have 
not responded further.  Discussion is not EVIL.  Discussion, is GOOD.

Best regards,
