Curious, I looked up the word below:
a=B7nath=B7e=B7ma (e-n=E0th=B9e-me) noun
1. A formal ecclesiastical ban, curse, or excommunication.
2. A vehement denunciation; a curse: =93the sound of a witch's anathemas =
some unknown tongue=94 (Nathaniel Hawthorne).
3. One that is cursed or damned.
4. One that is greatly reviled, loathed, or shunned.
[Late Latin, an accursed thing, from Greek anath=EAma, from anatithenai, =
dedicate : ana-, ana- + tithenai, to put.]
All I can say is that after being on this mailing list for over one year,=
have learned that no person here buys any ban, curse or excommunication o=
their communications. While you are entitled to your opinions, if they
want to discuss political correctness, they are going to do so.
