Yes, it would be nice if the people who work for the government also had to live under the same rules as the rest of us. As it is, they live in a state of privilege enjoying salaries that are typically 175 percent above that of the private sector with benefits to match. They do this without advancing the quality of life for anyone -- they have no purpose other than to push papers, collect *their* wages, enjoy *their* health insurance, and wait for *their* lavish retirement. Of course, they claim they have purpose, but most of us know better. The sooner we reduce the size and importance of government, the better off we all will be.

I'm not a moderator of this list, but I would like to ask you to please not use the PHP list for such confronting political diatribes. This is a very well known talking point that can easily elicit a lengthy off-topic discussion, and I don't think anybody is really interested in that. Again, this is just my opinion, but while it's okay to talk about things other than PHP on occasion, I don't really see what use this has other than provoking a response from someone.

Please be considerate is all I'm asking.



Considerate? Being Inconsiderate is what the government does for a living.

Additionally, what you said above is *your* opinion -- as *you* presented in a public forum. Who's opinion is more appropriate for this list is subject to debate.

As for me, I'll say whatever I want as the topic permits. If you will review this thread you will see that I was offering my code free to everyone except government. That's not an opinion but rather a statement of requirement for the code I'm providing. My second post to this thread contained the reason WHY the requirement.

If you don't like my requirements, and reasons for them, then please forward my postings to the trash and don't use my code.
