This is hardly the intent of any of the relevant posts.  Most of the dander 
we comb out of the LUG is comprised of aggressive misprisions, knee-jerk 
reaction, and thoughtless vaporing, usually accompanied by some pious 
appeal to civility and relevance, both of which are patently transgressed 
in the post itself.

Years ago I was researching a biography of an early 19th mineralogist who 
received a nice bit of wisdom from a friend in New York:

"In our endeavor to be right, let us not be righteous overmuch."
