Erwin, I said nothing of the sort and specifically said you are an 
exception! That your tests are among the few I trust. C'mon, read more 
carefully. I may have to change my opinion. I hope not.

And specifically for my post from which you infer this distortion, I was 
mostly defending Ted's right to hold an opinion based on his own experience 
when he was being attacked, and I was being told I had... forget that part, 
not important. I also expressed my opinion about some testers whose work I 
don't trust. Take that chip off the shoulder.

I actually thought the LUG was settling down and getting more friendly 
until I upset the apple cart by responding to Jim's post. To the group, I 
apologize. To Jim, too. But to you, I cannot because I never said what you 
claim I did. This is getting to be a habit. If you don't like my use of the 
English language, filter me out.
