If anyone thinks I am out of line here , let me know.  Am I expecting too

No, Alex, you're not expecting too much.  And while I was able to use Mr.
Hockemeyer's comments as a springboard to what I hope was a somewhat more
on topic post, I agree that the tone of his post was less than appropriate
for this forum, which is, after all, the JAVA400L mailing list as opposed
to the VBASIC mailing list.

Then again, perhaps Gene had a bad day.  If I were a Visual Basic
programmer, I'd be looking at Java in the same way that an auto worker
looks at a construction robot, and I'd be doing everything I could to
discredit the language.  Because, frankly, VB jobs (and RPG-CGI programming
jobs) are in many cases going to be supplanted by Java.

But then again, that's fuel for a completely DIFFERENT debate <grin>.
