Not at all. Taking the narrow view of my remark that you apparently
choose to: I expressed my opinion, just as you have expressed
yours. You're just as welcome and as entitled to ask *me* to put
a sock in it as I was to make the remark above. I'm just letting
you know that I'm personally tired of reading your whinges about
this particular issue.

That is a form of group decision. :-)
It would be interesting to find out how many bitful posts come
from non-subscribers. (The number of bitless ones from subscribers
is a little less interesting, though it might indicate how much
spam we can generate ourselves without it having to come from outside. ;-)
Jim, Roy, looking for another project in analysis of social dynamics? :-D
