Bravo, Kit!

Just the sort of response I'd have expected. Suggest you smell the roses
and grow up while you're at it. Perfect demonstration of your true colors.
Don't expect me to sit here and take personal insults from you or anyone

Everyone here is certainly entitled to his/ her opinion. As far as I'm 
no one has a right to take personal shots at anyone, especially you and B.D.

As for censorship, if the man who kindly provides this space and pays the
money wants to censor anyone, that's fine by me. I am a moderator on two
other Mailman lists and am quite adept at hitting the delete key.

Since I've had quite a lot of private mail today in support of my position 
others on LUG, particularly in view of your position as a Leica Dealer, you
might want to consider cooling your jets for a bit. You never know whom
else you might offend. Or would you like a bit more rope?
