Yikes. Must stop clearing my private data, as Firefox calls it. It seems to throw me off Mudcat!
I've received a number of complaints about this thread. It's one of many nasty threads we have, usually dominated by the same little group of nasty people.
Frankly, I don't know what to do about threads like this. I don't want to get involved in thses squabbles and I think any effort at intervention would be futile. Besides that, I just don't want to read all this crap. I'd start a thread to discuss how to handle this sort of thing, but a thread like that would end up in more squabbling. If you have opinions or suggestion on how we should deal with this animosity, contact me by e-mail or personal message.
I'm going to close this thread for now and let people cool down. If you want to continue the discussion, start another thread and use a civil tone.
