It is a gross violation of nettiquete to post someone's private 
communication meant for you, without their permission. If you want to take 
it public, just ask me. I was trying to slow down what I thought were 
unreasonable discussion levels on this topic.

Please be more considerate of Internet protocol in the future.

By the way, I wasn't telling you to not contribute to the discussion, but 
that I didn't want to any more. You ought pay attention. Oops, sorry, 
that's telling you what to do. Please pay attention.

I almost ignored your post, but thought, to be polite I would answer TO YOU 
what I meant by it. I figured most people already know what I felt about 
the topic and wanted to spare any their poor eyes from reading it again. 
The get enough from me already.

So,think before you abuse people's trust that you would honor a simple request.

And please spare us the whining. There is not one single person on this 
list who says any such thing.This is a worn out topic in itself. Nobody 
here says people can't contribute.

Just like my grandma used to say, "Just because you aren't being judged 
doesn't mean that there won't be consequences for your actions ."

Express an opinion and you will get a response. If people disagree with 
you, don't get into a hissy fit that they are tying to shut you up. They 
aren't, they're just challenging you to produce evidence they can accept. 
The Internet is full of disinformation. (And I've contributed my share, so 
save your fingers on that point.) Most of us want accurate information so 
we don't go spreading around the other kind. That's all.

And when anyone - especially when it's ME - wants to cut down on the 
bandwidth usage of the LUG - darn well honor it!
