Not picking a fight Russ, just reiterating Ralph's concern that many 
people have absolutely no idea what you are on about in many of your 
postings (not just to this list). It's not about kowtowing to some 
perceived lesser intelligence, but rather about getting your point 
across in a clear and concise fashion, as you have clearly demonstrated 
above you do have the ability to do. Wrapping your point in cleverly 
constructed prose to the point where it gets lost in translation doesn't 
really achieve anything.
