What have I missed?
Jim, if you're still lurking, let me say this; I think that there *is* a fair amount of nastyness to be had anywhere on the internet. I'd tell you to e-mail me, and we could trade war stories, but I don't post my e-mail for this very reason (things can be nasty here in cyberland, and I don't want it in my in box).
All I can tell you is that it is atypical here (in my admittedly limited experience), but that crud does happen. Keep in mind too that things are far and away off from "normal" for most considering the events of Tuesday.
