I'm very relaxed, thank you. I do not make up rules for others to follow. I ask 
for other peoples opinions so that I can reevaluate my views.

I do respect your views, as I clearly can see you have been helpful and 
constructive in earlier discussions in this newsgroup. So therefore if you 
think my statements are nonsense, there's a good chance you're right. And 
that's why I posted. To hear what other people think.

Sorry if I came off stiff and belligerent because that certainly wasn't ny intent.

Always do.
