Hello Everyone,

I think that this forum is designed for sharing opinions and imparting information. Garth did the former. I do not feel that he did so in order to directly or indirectly insult anyone on the list, and it is my opinion that he honestly feels those opinions which he expressed.

Is it the sort of opinion that gets one's panties in a bunch? Yes. Should we disagree if we do? Of course.

No reason, though, why we should be harsh, unkind or mean-spirited. Remember, we are all in this together, and there aren't that many of us out there. Let's be friends as they circle the wagons, OK?
