AHHHH! There is that pesky word "should" again! It's use is reserved for
those who have assumed the lofty moral position of supreme judgments and
remains the all-time favorite precursor to most violent crimes.

<BLAM!> "I tol' ya so." 

So, if you use a phrase such as "I think it would be better if..." then
you can at least hide the fact that you are really twitching to make a
judgment call, and usurp a little Power and Authority in the process,
while amongst polite society. 

Besides, if no one is asking a really decent question, why waste a
perfectly good maillist server amongst friends? Trained seals will not
bark for no fish. Somebody ask Goh a really good grub question,
quick! : ) Ric
