     Yes, ALMOST everyone, Bill, and you are not one of them.

     I guess it was non of your business either, eh?

     The killing of 6 million Jews is none of my business.  I am
not a Jew.

     If it is non of my business, then how come I knew about it the
day it happened, and how come it was seminal in the writing of the
APL's.  The other party in the conflict happens to be something of
a friend.  I did not go snooping into a matter that did come knocking
on my door. Further your attitudes towards this other party completely
changed the tone of the politics list to one where I left.

     I am sure you were happy about that.

    What does this mean Bill?  I am supposed to have my own view,
yet accept others views to?  I can only hold one view at a time.
Do you mean I refuse to LISTEN to others views?

     But now you have started sending me private mail again, snide
comments about the other party.  Why, are you pushing me?

     You were not given a chance.

     All are welcome to start what ever discussion they want on this
list, that is in the charter, I am just doing that.  The discussion
is important to me.  You are free to start any other one you want.
>>     By the way, I have no vested interest in who is right.
>        Yeah, right...
    Yeah right, Bill.  I would be perfectly happy to find out that
you were totally set up.  If you are as innocent as you claim, then
YOU WERE SET UP, and if I were you, I would be concerned about it.

>>     I would however like the truth to be known.
>        Then start paying some attention to the evidence, Homer.

     I thought it was none of my business.

     Why don't you POST some evidence, rather than trying to
cover your tracks, or derail the subject.
