HEAR HEAR, Rosa! I was appalled that someone would be so insulting on
this site, as well. I personally felt insulted and I'm sure many others
did as well. So far I've been grateful for all the educational and
stimulating interchanges that occur here. When someone's opinion is
different than yours why get into name calling? It is insulting and not
appropriate at all. Frankly, I'm dealing with this issue with my three
year old right now and have had enough of it already...I don't need it
here and certainly not from another adult. Anyway, I guess I'm now
officially part of the lightbulb percentages (re:how many artsednetters
does it take to screw in a lightbulb?). Sorry folks--I promise not to
waste any more time on this-- but I just couldn't keep from commenting.
