I respect your opinion. But you may not have noticed that KB and Johnny 
are ignoring the whole discussion and he prefers to go into things that do 
not matter. Even a reply I did not intend to send to the list.

I am not making anything up, and I am glad that Ned actually has proof of 
the problem we are trying to bring up. But as usual smoke and mirrors are 
prefered to distract people from the issue brought up.

So I think you fell in one of the traps to mischaracterize me, and make it 
personal. I know the tactics used by now.
