Alexis comments:

I strongly stand by what I wrote above. Bjorn wrote a totally uncalled for
comment to Chuck Cosimano in regard to one of his "one liners", suggesting
that Chuck belonged in Montana with the "other unabombers and trouble
makers", so I told him he was rude, and I still think he's rude, and that
what I wrote was entirely appropriate. There are getting to be all too many
self-appointed censors on this list. It's a shame.
