This message hardly warrents a response. Since many of the list members are some of the most knowledgable and helpful in the business, I suggest you wait a minute...you just might learn something. In the meantime, if somebody's sense of humor, or topic doesn't agree with you, well, that's what the delete button is for. I can't tell you how much I have learned from the contributors to this list. It has been invaluable.
