: My apologies for the off-topic rant. I'll try to contain
myself in the
: future... (but I can't make any promises).
Then I can't promise much either. Off-topic rants should be
private e-mail. If someone says something particularly rude in
public, I will probably deal with them. I hope other subscribers will
either complain to me in private, or complain to the writer in
private. Once one person starts ranting in public, everything
collapses. Of course, I expect everyone to be fairly polite in their
public discourse, because that means rants and feuds never start.
That is all.
