I was under the impression that the idea behind a discussion list
was to allow people to express their opinions. I simply expressed an opinion.

I'd never agree with such an accusation!


Or it could have been an excellent exchange of people's experiences with
an interesting pool of ideas created.

It is a pity this email stifled that.
