AWE! Lighten up Mark. If we were all perfect, we'd wouldn't be on this
planet, now would we? A perfectionist is great some of the time, but
they [perfectionists] really get annoying most of the time.

Remember you have your own faults to worry about rather than pointing
out the faults of others on this list.

oh plenty of those :), sorry if that set you off but it was a
general note (unlike some of the very directed stuff fired off here
recently) and based on one of lists running laughs (the bot) anyway!

(someone was wanting to hide at Gurths again need to fill another
Carp mine, query did you clean em all out the last time?)

Now hopefully back to SR.
