Sorry.  I think some of my comments may have been right to the point.  And I
did learn a fair bit about how digest works.  (And doesn't..  For example, I
saw the summary gives no indication of length of the post.)

However, I was WAY out of line to assume you were flaming me.

Again, sorry.

I understand your not wanting to be "list policeman", especially at times
when a lot of folks are breaking the rules.  (As it so happened, I let a
REAL LONG, REDUNDANT post slip out yesterday, myself.)  When you see a whole
lot of folks doing something that messes others up, I agree it's best to
post a comment to the list.

But I've had a few mentions privately, that I appreciated... especially the
ones that weren't primarily flames.  (I've had VERY few criticisms, BTW, and
find that extremely refreshing, given the volume (length, and/or tone ;-) of
some of my posts.)

Thanks for clarifying that, Ken.

Now I can get busy and start to work for Frank Kohlmann... ;D !

(zzzzzzz = $$$$$$$ :D)
