Are Pete Sims and Steven Ratkovich going for a posting record or
You do realize you don't win anything... ;)
My mail volume has tripled in the last week and little of it is
ShadowRN related. Especially the London Calling thread....
Please, I beg you, please drop the fluff.
(To be fair, Steven, you have been much improved the last few
But Pete, PUH-LEZE! )

And that goes for anyone else I missed. Cut it out. :)

Erm, I'm sorry, but this argument was kinda interesting right up
until you started completely ignoring being proved wrong. I said
"Cohesion". Out loud, honest, I did! And my boss looked at me
oddly and told me to be quiet... ;-)

Can I respectfully suggest that either you learn to argue proper-like
which, IMO, includes answering valid points/questions put to you,
as opposed to getting personally offensive or take it offlist....but,
I'm sure there'll be a friendly GridSec along in a moment to tell
you all of this.


There (s)he is.
