I had prepared a long reponse to the condescending tone itself from him, but had decided not to send it because it was really off topic - suffice to say I've seen more and more of this kind of thing in the last few months (and you aren't at all inncocent either, not sure I am either), but we should make an attempt to not invalidate other's opinions *especially* before they even have a chance to state them.

I snipped this prop-up for two loaded condescending words, ``insists''
and ``won't listen,'' and you snipped my entire post.  Yet I'm the one
who won't listen.

I guess in the future I'll have to give more weight to rules-of-thumb
if I want to avoid being mocked by a bunch of road-runner interweb
apologists.  Fortunately, I don't.  Just be sure to secure your
wireless AP, because if one of the drive-by vans detects it your
connection could be shut off for AUP violation.  enjoy!

Sorry to be maybe gratuitously caustic.  But I've been complaining
about this Interweb stuff for too long to just roll over and beg for
IP's.  This dogmatism-of-the-thumb seriously just doesn't leave enough
space for experimenters, which is what I thought we were.
