Not at all.  If you knew how often I get slammed for "wasting taxpayers
dollars" you'd know you were no more special than the rest of us!  :)

You just burst my bubble!! I thought I was the only one getting calls,
lawsuits, sworn at, etc. Man, I thought I was special.

Baowei & All,

If you don't want to deal with large amounts of grief, I would encourage
you to respond privately.  Due to threats of calls to my employer,
lawsuits, profanity, constant flaming of every response I post and
attaining my own little histonet stalker (you know who you are), I keep
99% of all my responses private.  There are a number of people & vendors
on this listserver that revel in tearing down the posts of others rather
than creating helpful or insightful posts themselves.  It is not a bad
thing for you to post privately to avoid these problems.

I actually used to post publicly up to the point that I was dealing with
personal attacks more than I was gleaning useful information from the
histonet.  Engaging in those types of interactions was too time
consuming, draining & enfuriating.  Expressing one's own view is nice
and, yes, it should be OK, but it isn't.  I see no value in "shaming"
someone into posting publicly.  If you don't want to...don't.

The funny thing is that I'll be getting flamed for this post which is
whining about being flamed...isn't it ironic?
