that's for you to decide; i write w/ neither up nor down intention.

personally, i don't expect you to do this, or anyone else to do
anything.  each of us can construct whatever motivation we wish to
support whatever frame of mind we wish.  if one finds ire (or impulsive
preaching or sideways spewfulness) to be useful, by all means revel in
it.  i read, adding an implicit "IMHO" in front of everything, catch the
part i find useful, and let the rest go.

in some sense, i have placed myself on the receiving end (indirectly, by
participating in this thread), even though i don't use windows.

ok.  i'll bow out of this thread now.
