Now, come off it people!!  This is REALLY going too far.  I get on this list
and try and help people out and this is the thanks I get.  Just frigging great.

Yeah, good job folks.  Maybe you might actually want to WAIT until things

Isn't there a glut enough of new discoveries out there to make you happy?

Geez, come off it folks.

Yeah, what a way to start the day...
