LB, if you count me in that opposition, then rest assured, I did not lose my cool, not once while writing that long post. Even that last jab was a calculated and pondered act though unpleasant for me to write. When i lose my cool, you'll know.
Frankly, I'm disappointed that you take the affair as one of winning arguments. I took it as a matter of understanding, and was at every moment prepared to concede to whatever idea you offered that was better than I had. Next time I'll chose somebody saner and less a victim of please-stoke-my-ego syndrome than yourself.
