I had begun a full-length response to this. But in the full light of this
beautiful Vermont Sunday morning I thought better of it.

In short, such an exercise struck me as 1] pointless (anyone who has spent
a week on this list knows how seriously to take the above
characterisations), 2] futile (given the general nature of Mr Kulikovsky's
posts) and --dare I say it-- 3] "arrogant" on my own part (surely Edward
Hobbs of all people does not need my meager defense).

So let me finally say simply this --and I trust I do not speak for only
myself here-- Andrew, get a grip.
