Re: [DMCForum] Forums, votes, and philosophical bullshit.

That is quite enough. If you want to argue, fight, play games with and
insult me, or anybody else for that matter, you will take it off list. If
this were a web based forum I'd be happy to create a "forum politics"
section where we could discuss this in the public view of those who choose
to watch, but in this venue it serves only to annoy most of the membership.

Consider this topic closed.
