	Which is utterly impossible to do. Point in question: I find
 your patronizing style utterly offensive.

	Would you care to name names, little one? This style of taking
 pot shots at a large fgroup of people, but hiding behind the shield
 of "I did not name names, so I can't possibly be insulting" is highly
 irritating and insulting.

	Living up on a high horse and callig people who do may happen
 to to understand whatthe hell you are talking about under all these
 circumlocutions and indirections "pigheaded" is trolling, and
 probably flaming.

	Which ones are these animals, pray? And how can they be
 anonymous, unless they use psuedonyms, like our old freiend John

	I find this vague rants where the ranter is too cowardly to
 actually name the names they are ranting against highly
 irritating. And yes, I do mean you, Mr. Haas.

could change the system, it would be illegal.
