I think after going back through some if not all of the messages in this thread that it's safe to say that everyone who contributed to this hullicost type conflegration was rite and everyone was wrong. Certainly each one of you is entitled to his/her own beliefs however if you have a problem with an individual I think you have a responsibility to take your thoughts directly to that individual. Hurling insults, calling names and downright rudeness are not certainly acceptible under any circumstances. I think and urge each individual to apolojuize for his words and actions and to communicate that to the moderator who left in such a huff. And please feel free to forward this message to him as well, there is nothing to be gained from any of what has gone on this morning, and much to be lost. I urge all participants in this brew-haha to look at what they have said and why they have said it and re-think their stance. It's certainly okay to have your own set of beliefs, however if you force those beliefs on others and refuse to accept that whether you agree with them or not, if you look at what they are saying, you'll find out in the end that all of you are right.
