I shall leave that sacred and most noble deed in your very capable hands.
You are braver man than I, and certainly possess far more patience. My
three year-old tends to drain my auxilliary patience supply. I will
continue to evaluate my sources of information and in the case of
newsgroups, will weed out those who, after careful and considerate
evaluation, I consider to be trolls or nutcases. And in Ed's case, I
prefer silence...
