Mike, sorry if I came across as being overly defensive or thin-skinned.  
I really don't want to step on toes, I'd rather just kick it with folks 
who share my interests.  In retrospect, it might have been better if I 
just didn't respond. Also, it's pretty likely that folks were just 
expressing themselves and things went off the rails a bit. Email is weird 
that way.

Sorry to all if I ruffled feathers. I'm not really that prickly, I just 
felt I could try to move the conversation along even though I was skating 
the edge of some potential vitriol, as long as I was polite enough. It 
seems that I at least partially failed at doing that, Mike, since you 
picked up on a bit too much negativity and defensiveness.

I'll turn down the amplifier a bit, and switch the station to easy 
listening for a while.  :-)
