Noah. First off your views come off straight out of Socialism 101 to some
of us on the list. Your intent may be otherwise but it rubs me the wrong
way and reminds me of idealistic soc/comms from my college days!! You
obviously have an extensive vocabulary and I say bravo to your knowledge of
words, but who actually speaks that way?  It tends to put me off as it is
if you are trying to impress us with your superior knowledge. Yes we
understand you but is it necessary to use 95 cent words when 75 cent ones
would suffice? You are obviously intelligent but must be naive if you can't
figure out the reasons you are being taken to task. You are off to a better
start by labeling the manifesto posts and condensing your number of
messages. Sorry if I was blunt but I don't want to disregard anyones posts
but when I see your name my inclination is to groan!!! Well just my
thoughts and YMMV. Later.Mike
