: Geez, Rich and Elaine leave for a few days and suddenly we're refighting the Civil War. I have the feeling that no one is going to change anyone else's mind at this point, and I for one am tired of looking at the name-calling, etc. In the interest of peace in our community, why don't you all take this fight off the board. You can continue it, if you wish, through emails.
I must say I agree 100%! I have been posting here for about 2 years and I am quite appalled at the name calling. Some of these words should NOT even be printed! Please settle this through private e-mails, we would like to have our peace restored!

another to face reality.
