Firstly, do not top post in this mail list. OK? The moderators can come 
down really hard on you about this.

With this in mind I am transferring your comments to the appropriate 
location at the bottom.....

Ouch! An unacceptable four-letter word!

(You should use "merde" - it's French and so, so much more acceptable 
you know....But then if you use such words as you have in this post then 
you wouldn't know that, would you?)

Isn't this a four-letter word considered to be foul language which you 
have already used above? Oooow.....The first time is an accident, the 
second time is.....hmmmm?

Once again, another four-letter word......Sigh...
