Okay, thanks Tom, you've now adequately discharged both our complaints.  If you
don't engage in the described behavior --- with the resultant, or even more
brute, behavior on my part --- then you and I have nothing to argue over, for I
respect your right not to smell my fumes if you respect my right to make them by
not intruding into them then claiming some higher moral authority.
