Thank you guys. I knew you wouldn't let me down. 
You outdid yourselves. On this illustrious 
mailing list where from «you know who» all the 
way to the neighborhood young kid posts, I made 
an apparent innocuous statement that included: 
"if someone, under the false pretenses of helping 
you can turn things from bad to worse for you, 
they will. That's the name of the game here," 
Now, check the archives. Do you find there a kind 
and/or nice word? NO. Do you find posts by four 
volunteers who made a point of proving me right? 
YES. I'm absolutely sure they were doing their 
best to help, weren't you? Of course you were. 
It's not nice to make personal attacks, right? Right.

Y'all have a nice day.
