Hopefully Bill P won’t feel the need to return to the list to spew his BS.


As far as people posting in poor English, here are my thoughts… big deal… I applaud these people for posting at all compared to the thousands on this list who sit dormant. I’m sure a lot of people have to use translation software to make there post and can only hope some of the engineering terms come out half way decent. This is an international list, give people some slack who are trying to participate without the benefit of 16 years of English classes.

This is cool!  We haven’t seen a good fight in a while on this list since ADA!

I stand by my opinions on people who:

a.) brag about obtaining work by holding fund-raising breakfasts for politicians.  (It seems to me that straight prostitution would be easier,  think of it, no dirty dishes to wash.)

b.)  appear to think that the rest of the world is interested in their political views

I do notice that I made a grammatical error in my remark about pancake breakfasts though.  Does that make me ignorant?
