 AARRGGHH!!!!   Here we go!  Anything else we should do whilst posting?  
 we should give a test before allowing anyone to join the list!  ;-) >>

I must agree with Alan.  I am an editor by profession, and by involuntary 
reflex some of what I read on the list makes me wince.  However, I have never 
said a word--except as a joke when the mistake made the message say something 
else, and that something else seemed funny.  I never said anything because 
the point of this list is information transfer, not an exercise in typing 
accuracy and literacy.  Come on, give it a rest and stick to the topic.
