For incredibly high noise level, too many ">>>"'s, and ad hominem character,
this Email morsel has been copied into the CoV Pit, there to stay for all
eternity on the ever lengthening "Requiem Dees" thread. Go check it out in
the CoV BBS, along with a tasty array of other . . . ahem . . . brownie
fudges treats, and other assorted Church of Virus desserts.
If you like strife, we may just be willing to watch. But seriously folks,
while that may be entertainment within designated CoV domains, the same
assumption does not hold true on the memetics list. BTW, we have the
memetics mailing list publicly visible on our BBS, so you can keep your sane
eye on it while you virtually indulge in those forbidden fratricidal fruits
and other devilish ad hominem delights with the other. As my homicidal
neighbor once said, "All things in their proper places". :)
