You are missing the point. How often do these things have to

If you do not know, I do not think you should really be
participating in this discussion. If you do know, you perhsaps should
not be participating here with this inflamatory stance either.

Bullshit. You have totally missed the point of my message, and
have the gall to come in with a cendescending flammage that is ill
