to do...

Well, college habits die hard ... how about going back and reading what
you had "written".

For a change stop getting personal with folks and contributing something
positive. Getting abusive with list members doesn't fall under "pulling
each other's leg". As Sundeep said, NOBODY wants moderation, but everybody
has a right to point out when things get out of hand, and you can't bully
people out of this right.


P.S. let's stop this thread now. I think, you are even making ME piss off
the rest of the folks on this list.
