To be fair I wasn't commenting on the whole thread, more on the angry 
nature of your final reply, and didn't really consider Kay's remarks 
fully. So perhaps I could ask *both* of you to be more civil to each 
other, and leave it at that? Storm in a teacup, of course. I'm sure war 
won;t be declared about this.

Consider the 200,000 (?) readers of the group who *didn't* complain 
about your post and your software as supporters, if you like :-)
