Thanks Kay. Perhaps it's just me. I think it's a problem that
there's so much conflict over something so simple, and I think it's
especially problematic that the details of the conflict get aired as
the response to a question from someone trying to be helpful. I would
think there would be other lists for such things, though it still
troubles me that something so simple would be in dispute.
Yes, the conflict is reality. It is the reality that is troubling.
As for tone, I didn't think the tone of Tom Hughes was very friendly,
nor the mindless response made by Steve.
But hey, if it's just me, feel free to ignore this.
Kenneth, can you elaborate on your post? What in my post is typical of a troll?
