There have been several posts here in the last few days objecting to Dan Emory's comments about conditions on the commercial framers list. Indeed, sarcastic complaints from *any* source are uncalled for here. I have asked Dan to let go of the past, and he has graciously agreed. I want to offer him my public thanks for that. So you can all turn your kill filters off now. ;-) In conclusion, I'd like to note that: 1. The *facts* Dan offered were all accurate; the issue was his "tone", and the point of bringing them up at all. 2. Some of the *objections* to his comments were more nasty and insulting to Dan and the group as a whole than anything he ever said. Others were civil and appropriate. 3. On *any* list, one will generally do better by not responding to posts that one doesn't like, and going on to the ones one does, than by replying with nastiness. I want to thank those who have maintained their civility and equanimity during the past week. Together we will create a resource here that will be of great benefit to all. You have my warmest appreciation! -- Jeremy H. Griffith firstname.lastname@example.org VP, Software Development http://www.omsys.com/ Omni Systems, Inc.
