I resent that slur Sir, and would be interested to hear your reaction to my resenting it... ;)
No - seriously, it's not that at all - a look at the replies (that are still coming in...) gives me exactly what I looking for - answers to the original questions I posed, plus an informed view by one of my 'peer groups' on assorted aspects of the whole mind/spirit issue to boot. The post was scrupulously wishy-washy to avoid any issue of 'sides', and I'm sure you'll see from my other posts that vicarious trolling is not my raison d'etre at all.
I like a drink, you are a drunk, he/she is an alcoholic. Anon
