My Delete key is overheating...tell you anything?  Those that do not 
cause rules have nothing to worry about.  Those that the rules were 
made for ...well....I have a delete key ;-)
I am way too busy in my "hobby" to bother with lurkers or 
naysayers.  For a clue look at my website.  Genuine , respectful 
debate will not be censored.
