Yes, you are right Damien. I had some discussion with Dan privately and he is
very polite and diplomatic. I went off a little half-cocked and apologized to
him accordingly.

Over the discourse of the last couple of weeks, some have 'gone off' on me
without reading a single thing I wrote - and in turn putting words in my mouth I
never said. After a couple of weeks of constantly defending and RE-explaining
myself, it can get very frustrating hearing certain people trashing my posts for
no other reason than what appears to be I am not one of the "in" crowd with
appropriatly phrased "catch-words" spouting some particular "party-line". I
apologize if I got a little overly defensive in this regard. Like most everyone
here, I very much want to engage in healthy discourse and debate on issues that
interest all of us - increasing extropy.
