I quess you don't have a clue on what happens when you post to a Listserv.
So here goes ... I address (as do you I assume) to not to Ms. Wilson nor to Mr. Hendrickson. Then
the listserv system sends it to all the email addresses it has in it's
database. As far as my post being rude or not, I cannot make a full
assessment nor defense for you have neglated to attach the post you are
commenting on. This is exactly my point in my message. I did not intend to
be rude nor to I actually feel that I was. I only described points that
defended her position as well as why including of previous text was
valuable. AND I MIGHT add asked for the opinion of those wiser than myself
their opinion. As far as I know there is no way for me to determine whether
someone has an adequete email application or not. Everyone who does have
adequate applications should not have to do without necessary information
for the few who can upgrade to better applications. Personally, I use
Eudora Light v1.5.4.b11 ... it's freeware. If I receive a message that is
too long it automatically cuts it in half and adds 1/2 and 2/2 to the
subject line informing me of what happened. I'll be happy to assist any who
would like to change to what appears to be a superior email application by
the comments on this list.

Mr E ... say it out loud, it speaks for itself.

respectfully submitted,

"As witnesses not of our intentions but of our conduct, we can be
true or false, and the hypocrite's crime is that she [he] bears
false witness against herself [himself]. What makes it so
plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that
integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices
except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true,
confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the
hypocrite is really rotten to the core." Hannah Arendt
(1906-1975) On Revolution [1963], introduction.
