Thanks guys. I've gotten a lot out of most of this thread, and would have been sad to see it closed permanently. I'll try to encourage everyone (e.g. myself) to stay on-topic.

Sincerely,
Kevin T.

P.S. I'll re-read the guidelines too before posting any further here.

Okay, here's two links worth taking a look at:
The first link is especially useful as it directly addresses this thread's topic. The second link adds some commentary about why we have such a freakin' hard time deciding what to call each other and various things. Still somewhat relevant, but it's the first link that you'll especially want to look at.

Regards,
Kevin T.

Its really not an issue for the OP to alter the topic or even for it to get derailed in so much as it makes sense and follows some train of thought-mods really don't care.
There are lots of threads that end up being conversational in nature and that's totally cool.
But not when someone starts being hostile (to simplify it).

That sounds like a wise policy to me LR! Luckily the topic is "large and fuzzy enough" to accomodate a tangent or three. But like you said, when things go from off-topic to ugly, that's when any thoughtful mod would want to step in and help out somehow. Things were getting so full of negative energy, and had departed virtually 100% from the topic's home planet. So thanks to you mods for taking some timely action that helped us all take a deep breath and start afresh.

And now for today's tangent this Christmas season ...

Yesterday I watched "Remember the Titans" for the first time. Very cool and enjoyable show (and this is coming from a guy who hardly knows a thing about football). Adding it to my list of faves; highly recommended.

Doesn't have a lot to do with the original post but it does address the problem of racial issues -- and is based on a true story. I got choked up on the hospital scene, so keep your kleenexes handy just in case.
