(my context and statements were very clear) Is he the one who criticized my use of words ending in "oid"? :P What matter? _I_ know that I was using the technical terms correctly if others haven't read any anthropology articles that

Welcome back! You're stuck on QWK, too, eh? Yeah, they all kinda went teats-up with Y2K! (as did Bluewave, for that matter... some people are STILL having trouble with BW!) I found a great freeware QWK(& SOUP) reader just prior to Y2K, so was well used to it when I found out that it worked just fine with 4 digit dates! The key features I like about NFX are: -can handle any size of packets(QWK &/or REP) that

You don't agree? I guess you're either not American or are even less acquainted with their history/evolution than I am! Most of my fellow Canadians use the American right to bear arms as a point to show what evil violence-mongers the Americans are! :P (I hate dishonesty! even more when it becomes entrenched as a cultural tradition!)) My understanding of it is that the formers of the USA were most concerned that this new nation did not degenerate into

Bush's "heart."
It always throws me when 'liberal' is used as a pejorative. Hereabouts it means "mainstream." Over in the debate echo, John Wilson, expatriot American now in Vancouver, was expressing gratitude about the turkey he'd just had for Thanksgiving dinner. He said it had two left wings.

Sure, George. The government controls the media and the schools. The Liberals, the Conservatives, the NDP, the Bloc Quebecois and the Alliance Party all belong to a conspiracy that just hands over the keys to the winner of each election. That anti-American sentiment is what brought us NAFTA, the longest unguarded border in the world, and 80% U.S. media content in 90% of the Canadian population. Yep: the right to be as ignorant as a dog's butt. If you want

Facts? Now you really DO want to get into this non-issue. You did slightly in this post. I agree with your point to a point. Yet would you agree that as numbers of people go up, quality of life tends to go down? That is- outside the help of technology many people can not afford? earn of earn Yes. Getting people jobs so they can support themselves is a viable, fruitful solution to poverty and dependance on 'haves'. Yet how

Just joking, my man. You know, the Mind of the Bible Believer being empty and all that. I have internet ability. I use NetZero, that free internet thingie. I'm just a cheap bostitch. :-P I am.
