As for being so sensitive about what is said in a public
forum, I would look to my sigline. Imagine the problems
that would result if everyone on the internet decided to
warlord, and put a personal political statement - decidedly
offensive to some - on each and every email they sent out.

I for one understood what he meant. But then again, I look
for the spirit of what a person says, instead of picking
apart the words that they say it with.

Guilty for clue-impairment is a lot different than guilty of intent to
spread.  As for clue-impairment, I think everyone here agrees that Cisco
should have this well filtered.  If this was your intended statement, then
yes, agreed.  It was the implication of malice that I think was
inappropriate, especially in a public forum.

We [hopefully] return to our regularly scheduled... Hmmm.....

If Governments really want us to behave like civilized human beings, they
should give serious consideration towards setting a better example:
Ruling by force, rather than consensus; the unrestrained application of
unjust laws (which the victim-populations were never allowed input on in
the first place); the State policy of justice only for the rich and
elected; the intentional abuse and occassionally destruction of entire
populations merely to distract an already apathetic and numb electorate...
This type of demogoguery must surely wipe out the fascist United States
as surely as it wiped out the fascist Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The views expressed here are mine, and NOT those of my employers,
associates, or others.  Besides, if it *were* the opinion of all of
those people, I doubt there would be a problem to bitch about in the
first place...
