in reply to Politeness (to one another) is a virtue

Sorry sundialsvc4, when we start to limit what words we use, we start to limit what ideas we can express. Not everyone is endowed with a broad vocabulary. Sometimes being eloquent is helpful; other times, there is no substitue for the F-word. I was not offended by the OP language -- but I was saddened by the narrow-mindedness.

PS if that post bothered you, never, ever, ever attend an mst talk :-)

    What narrow mindedness?

      OO is ... a passing fad

    Agreed. I found the post easy to dismiss—especially without an identity attached. And you were too kind. "Narrow minded" ne "wrong." OO is a fad in the same way women wearing pants is; only to a bigot.
