Thank you for telling me that. I too have firm beliefs. Aren't they

So you're a humourless git who fixates on people's spelling errors and
word omissions. does the term "anal retentive" convey anything to

I own no shares. Now you'll have to acknowledge that your feelings
and reality are not related. Good luck with your therapy...

Nuances, Yeebok, nunaces...
Often, in Usenet, when one party gets sick of a debate in which
obviously neither party will satisfy the other, the party of the first
part shuts the idiocy down with "you win".
Sometimes, in Usenet, when this happens, some anal retentive comes
along and says "I didn't think it was a competition".
This generally does not add a real lot to the now-dead discussion, but
is apparently highly satisfying to the anal retentive...

Indeed, that was my point.
(the fact that I support welfare, govt intervention into malfunctioning
markets and am skeptical about privitisation and suport environmentally
sound policies makes me left wing according to Doug)
