Your words are quite simply the best I've seen on the subject , in a long , long time . Well said .
Why am I doing an "atta-boy!" ? Because some folks may have skimmed over what I think is the most important part of your message .
Thanks Harvey .
One of the joys of this list is the large number of transactions I've had with other members (buy, sell, and trade) without a single glitch. There seems to be a "culture" here that regards a transaction as an effort to get a "win-win" in which both sides benefit.
Somehow, the "my way or the highway" correspondence leads me to think that there is a different model of transaction in ____'s mind, something of a "conquest" or "win-lose" process.
I have other ways of meeting my desires, and wish him only a bountiful crop from the seeds he sows.
