While placing no judgement either way on the course of this conversation thusfar, I think it's important to point out that English *is* Geir's second language, and perhaps the "f" word isn't as loaded in his experience as it is in North America? I went ahead and cut him some slack as soon as I read it, considered it a gaffe and was pleased that most who responded were gracious in so doing.

It might be helpful to bear the fact that English *is* a second language for him in mind, though.

And now back to the discussion of the relative merits of the work of Joseph Hansen...

All the Best-
