Re: Mind your language Rahul -please

Rahul Jindal rearranged electrons thusly:

Swati's right Rahul.  Profanity doesn't help win arguments (or even carry them
forward).  It's "seemingly reasonable" arguments that are needed, I expect.

Also, that college slang word you use literally stinks - I wouldn't use it any
further on this list (esp as it's available as a publicly accessible archive).
