Chad, I don't want to start an argument, (particularly since Brad and I have
made our peace) but I think I'm going to have to reply to this.

I KNOW that I resent this reference...

Obviously, I would have to appreciate THIS refernce... :-)

But the thing I find most untimely about this message is that in our last
posts on this list - re the squat issue - (we have continued to correspond
privately) we both agreed to "cool it". In his post responding to Chad's
post, John "thanks Chad for the policing". It seems to me that this is a
week too late to do any good and just well timed to throw fuel on the fire.

I presume that you are writing this with the best of intentions, but your
timing sucks and I think your comments might have been phrased a little more

Anyway, the squat thing is a dead issue, and I am fully in favour of
attempting to avoid raging arguments in the future, so I guess I would have
to thank you for your suggestions...
