I have just recapped---reread this thread, and I have begun to realize 
it was I who should apologize.  I spoke with loaded words; I called 
someone a nut, and did not even listen to what they had to say.  I may 
have offended people, especially people who agree with the message, but 
in any case, I spoke badly.  I plead that I am a simple and 
straightforward person, and am not subtle.  When stressed or tired,
I lose tact.  I speak my mind, and while I intend no slight, I can see 
how I may come across that way.  It is difficult to see a shrug or a 
smile in email.

I think I will try to lurk more, as I did before.
