Well, of course I could, but my *newsreader* couldn't. So, it ends up
offering it to me to read. If it had been marked OT or Pol:, I have it
carefully trained to *not* offer it up for me to read. I am hardly the
only one to have a set up like this. Marking your OT post as OT is
simply being polite when you intrude into a woodworking group with
non-woodworking material and makes life easier for many of us.
OK, I lied a little: I often read posts marked OT. However, the recent
rushes of politics makes it painful so I temporarily banned OT posts
from my system too. It's not that I don't care about politics or even
find them interesting (or love discussing it), I just find the
discussions here somewhat unfruitful and -- being a woodworking group --
would prefer if -- at minimum -- people would simply mark them as such
(i.e. Pol:). I am not holding my breath though.
Paul, please be aware that I have not made any political statements
here. I posted the link for the convenience of anyone interested in
watching the documentary. I know the pitfalls of discussing politics.
:) Sorry I neglect the obligatory "OT" in the subject line.

That was a TYPO, Tee Why Pee Oh, Ed, as in " I'm not wasting any time
proofreading my posts when responding to nonsense such as yours". You
need another hobby besides nitpicking.

Actually, I do have another one. Woodworking. I even have a new project I'm
in the design and idea stage with. Next week I'm going to buy the wood and
get started. Meantime, instead of going out in the cold, damp, shop, I can
sit in the warmth of the computer monitor and nitpick. It is a service I
provide for others that just don't have the time.
Hey, don't take this seriously as it is not good for your blood pressure and
:) I'm doing ok, Ed. Please don't think I'm on the verge of apoplexy
just yet! <g>
Cold and damp, huh? That doesn't sound too inviting. It's overcast
here today but the shop is warm enough to be comfortable in a Tee shirt.
My sympathies. <g>
