     You should see the private e-mail I get.

Give this "light of

     I was not referring to me, I was referring to all of you.

     You are too swift to judge.

     If it is not my postings that are driving them off, it must
y'alls.  I don't feel that the postings here are a lot of crap.

     For all the noise the light level is pretty high.

     Not including my stuff, which is too bizarre to be considered light.

     OK, but I am getting sick of private e-mail asking me to
bounce so and so off the list.  If I let the 0 percenters go,
you must all assume that I have noticed it anyway and have
not bothered to mention it.

     This is gratuitous insult.  If you think they are that stupid,
maybe you should post something of greater intelligence.
