Well, I've learned from a current discussion on theos that "freeloaders" are
clearly unpleasant and undesirable.  They should be "discriminated against"
(per Tom) and are even, perhaps pathetically, "amusing."  I shall be dogged
in my lookout for them.

However, I have also learned that I can breathe a sigh of relief and,
consequently, find my heart laden with gratitude - for after reading your
post, Titus, I understand that "freeloaders" can only be males.  Whew!
