: Captain Paranoia? Does he wear a cape? What kind? Can he leap to giant conclusions, anger faster than a speeding bullet, defend his parochial view more powerfully than a locomotive?

LOL - Billy!! I like this reply better than your other reply, so will respond to this one! Your description of Captain Paranoia is PERFECT!! And spot on, too!
Seriously though, I have also been in the situation where a post niggled me (remember WW2 debate?!), but I didn't see an attack that wasn't there, and I did reply with some tact and courtesy (at least I HOPE that I did!!). Sometimes, I think people are in a hurry to see something controversial or provocative.....when it just isn't there. Is the article I posted THAT inflammatory?! I would rather find out why someone would see this as yet another form of attack, instead of just food for thought.....
