Whoa! Dan, you sound like you're in serious need of some Prozac [1], dude.

Is there something on your mind? It's probably a good idea to share it than 
keep it bottled up inside. When someone like *you*, who actually manages 
thelist, says that his "experience with evolt" is "frustration", it doesn't 
exactly motivate the rest of us, ya' know. And I wouldn't want the 
enthusiasm in theforum to die out.

I've been witnessing a fair bit of name calling and unwarranted sarcasm [2] 
in theforum lately, and I'm not sure why all this is happening. I do know 
that it's probably not *necessary*. Let's try and sort out our differences 
objectively and logically, eh? The easy way to do this to discuss a 
person's ideas and opinions, and not the person himself/herself.



[1] Prozac: American brand name for an anti-depressant drug
[2] Sarcasm: derived from a Greek word that literally means "to tear the 
flesh". Whoever said "sarcasm is the highest form of wit" probably didn't 
have many friends. ;)
