         Perhaps I don't, if that would require me to accept being called 
names as shown here:

         I don't like where this discussion is leading.  My second post on 
the subject said that it would lead to arguments and fighting, and it's 
done exactly that.

         I posted that I don't do that.  I've never considered throwing 
anybody off the list.

         That's cool.  If everybody wants to discuss politics, let's get to 
it.  But I don't like it, and I think there's going to be more trouble coming.

         But I'd rather hear more about the trail.

Pet peeve: breath is a noun,  breathe is a verb (When you take a breath, 
you breathe...)
