*More polite and friendly*?!  And here I thought I was getting into
twice as many flamewars as anybody else on this group... typo for
'less', by any chance?  [I don't wink, I don't adverbialize, I iconize
only very occasionally, the polysyllabic eruditeness of my hallmark
circumlocutions pushes my Gunning Fog AND my Flesch-Kincaid up
in the high 20's -- what more could I do to shew hostility...?]

human fallibility, which seems to be working...).
