That's pretty harsh, Brian. What exactly are you feeling threatened by? If you
don't like someone else's post, why not just ignore it? As far as I can tell,
this is an open forum, not an elitist clique of single-minded drones. Lighten
up a little. And if you're seriously offended by this list being "infiltrated"
by people who don't think exactly like you, why not start your own list? You
could have prospective members take a test or sign an oath or something.
