Hey, Jim, cool down. My post was just as relevant or irrelevant as

You stated (quote): "Anyway,she makes a lot of money as a waitress in a
local restaurant. So she bought a new Leica R7 from Jeff at K&S"
(unquote) amongst quite a few other parts of your personal CV and those
of your kids. I now know all about your cars, the cars of your kids, the
educational projects of your daughter, etc. Found that kind of cute. My
response was directly related to your way of presenting your argument
and was as relaxed, tactful, tongue in cheek and friendly as can be. To
borrow your own style: I'm not sure why you react that way on the Leica
list. Does not sound too nice, does it ?

Friendly regards
