Jon, I am in your debt for pointing out to me that there are some (maybe
even a majority) of readers who like the long posts, and I'll certainly
refrain from further comment on that. I am also indebted to you for comments
about my "dispute". I felt that Ward's comments (which I cited) were an
unintentional slam against the postion I and others advocate, and that's how
I treated it. My apologies to the list if I seemed to be taking Ward's
comments too personally. You do note, though, that Ward wanted me to respond
to several points, and I hope that you were not so put off by the tone of my
response that you ignored what I was saying. I will certainly take your
suggestions to heart and refrain from commenting further on the discussion,
unless I am asked to do so.
