	Can we help it if you have a dirty mind? I always translate
 RTFM to Read the Fine Manual.  And you are displaying your ignorance
 of a fine USENET tradition; if you are thin skinned enough to be
 insulted by people telling you to RTFM, man, you probably need to
 stay away from mailing lists and USENET.

 Rich> Someone curses you in person, you're insulted.  In email, you're not?

	You carry big chip on your shoulder, and if you want to have a
 thin skin, you'll feel insulted a lot.
