  You took the words right out of my mouth!  I don't know who the heck 
this Terry Parks person is or if they are of the male or female 
persuasion, but I can tell you one thing: Posting one-liners behind 
select pieces of text without really trying to have a discussion about 
something are a quick way into my kill file too.  I like to see a little 
more maturity and intelligence conveyed in the typical post myself.  If 
you have a point to make then do so!  Don't waste our bandwidth with this 
nonsense.  By the way, Terry's posts DO convey a sense of intolerance of 
others views, the very thing she/he purports to dislike.  Go figure.
