Hmm, I think this is more a case that I was responding to your comment
directly... rather than as an addition to the thread.

[Damn, I've tried to write the next paragraph to this response about 4
times... it's not working :/ ]

I *think* what I'm trying to say, is that I feel that your interpretation of
that comment is different to what I'd see it as. The way you see it casts an
image that I'd be loathe to be associated with... Then, of course, it
entirely depends on who says it.

I know that doesnt make much sense, so further discussion of this should
probably be taken to private mail, if you want.

Oh, I wholeheartedly agree.
