Well said.

One of the problems with email arguments is that every individual 
comment has a reasonable response., However, responding to each comment 
in turn does not necessarily respond to the argument. This frustrates 
both sides, often leading to flaming. I had no intention of sparking a 
flame war.

However I do believe this is an important issue, but the current thread 
has been taken too far to be of any use. I apologise for my part in 

That doesn't mean I'll drop the issue, but I will try my best not to 
get drawn into these discussions which tend to wander off topic and get 
more and more heated.
