I'm curious. I've thought back over this thread and can't recall
(without digging through the archives) what happened here that might
have provoked this sort of response. 

I do recall that there was not a lot of good detailed information from
OP on the problem, but maybe I missed it. What are we, as a community
of trying-to-be-helpful users, doing to cause this reaction? It seems
to be happening more and more, though maybe I'm new enough to not see
the pattern properly. Clearly this guy is upset, frustrated, but to
block out the list that's supposed to be trying to help is

maybe I'm being overly sensitive.
