Subject: Posting nettiquette

I will not fuel this fire. If marbux thinks he can decide if a thread is 
"done" and knows for sure that the OP wants to see his deviations, so be it.

It makes this ML feel uncomfortable, as the signal (OP questions) gets 
buried in noise (unrelated TC stuff).

I for one prefer on-topic threads. And wrt having no arguments - marbux, I 
have nothing to say to your TC ranting. As you seem to believe that the 
whole list must know what Rob does right or wrong from your individual POV 
and you deliberately decide to put it in the tail of an unrelated thread, I 
decided to point out that I oppose to such behaviour.

Feel free to take it as ad hominem attack. Wasn't meant that way, but from 
experience I knew what to expect. I was not disappointed ;-)

That and the ad hominem attack. I agree he had no substantive points.

I shed many a tear for leaving you feeling lonely, but a fellow
sometimes has to get some work done.  :-)
