I do apologize to anybody who took this personally. I would like to
point out that I'm very good natured and mean no disrespect to anybody.
That being said, I did offer a solution in point 3. The purpose for the
e-mail was not to antagonize or declare superiority, merely to show that
these same topics come up far to often, and have no effect every time.
Other than starting debates which lead to nowhere.
Again, please don't take this as a personal attack. I'm just trying to
have a little fun while keeping things in perspective.
