holy cow! this is a great product, but the elitist attitudes of some of
the people really makes me want to retch. eric politely brought up a
perfectly valid and well-articulated point, so why do you feel the need
to belittle him with such a condescending and insulting message? does it
make you feel better about yourself in some way?

i'm sure now you'll respond with something like, "Obviously. If you were
truly interested in stopping my elitist attitude you would have shot me
in the head with a .44 magnum rather than lamenting my existence..."

as an older friend of mine used to say, "You catch more flies with honey
than you do with vinegar." why go out of your way to alienate people?
