Oh, chill out Baccus.  I said nothing of the sort, implied nothing of the
sort, and didn't even think it.  E!F is a bunch of raving anarchists, and
no way is Judi Bari or anybody else qualified to speak for them.  You 
can't blame an organization for something if there isn't an organization
to blame.

All I was saying is that Judi Bari claims she didn't spike trees.  Fine.
I believe her.  She says spiking trees was a loser, and they don't do
that any more.  Fine.  I believe her.  

I also said the whole question was moot (means irrelevant, if you don't
know) because mills have all installed electromagnetic metal detectors
that kick any spiked log off the line.  This catches bullets, fence wire,
spikes and no trespassing sign nails.

Nobody in the timber industry worries about it any more.  It's strictly
an urban concern.  I'm willing to bet that the yoyo screaming about
E!F doesn't have a single callus on his hands that a golf club didn't
put there.

You gotta quit slipping your meds.  The world really isn't full of demons.
