Having read through the entire thread: Yes, On Mature Recollection <tm

thread was turning into an abusive rant, which was likely to
unnecessarily alienate a significant section of the ILUG community:
I just thought it was no good making great points if you are losing your audience with throwaway insults.
On re-reading the thread, I realised I over-reacted, and ignoring the mud it was alot more informative.
