You know Karl, this is EXACTLY the kind of 'nonsense' that does NOT need 
to be on this list.  How DARE you criticize someone because of a typo? 
Have you NEVER mistyped a word before?  I mean we know you aren't 
anywhere near perfect simply based on your completely misguided posts on 
here, so you can't use that as an excuse.

Who do you think you are?  You post horrible advice, you criticize 
pretty much everyone on the list who know what they are doing, and then 
you have the nerve to say something like that?  If ANYONE needs tossed 
off this list, it's you.  I've never in my life, on- or off-line seen 
anyone speak to someone else like you just did.

You talk about being nice and helpful on this list and how I am running 
people off by being stern with you (in particular) and yet I see THIS! 
This is beyond childish and immature.

This is the last straw for me, I don't care what problem you might be 
having, I'll not help.  Consider this my gift to you.  That doesn't mean 
I won't call you down for crap like the above, but I sure as hell won't 
help you.

I'd like to think others on this list feel the same way.  But that's not 
for me to say.  I personally am APPALLED and ASHAMED to be on a list 
with someone like you.
