It also does not hurt at least to try to be polite about it.  Rude, or
even flat (i.e., those open to interpretation as rude), comments don't
help.  Trust me on this one - I know (perhaps you've seen this from
me?), and I've been posting on mailing lists, discussion groups,
newsgroups and such since 1979 or so.  I've flamed and been flamed,
been rude and been polite.  Polite works.

Now, can we put this OT tangent to bed?

Thanks.
