I have been FURIOUS that a few vicious people have ruined rec.crafts for
the rest of us!

it's so easy for self-centered people to be rude when they're protected by
electronic distance.

The first time I was flamed, I was devestated!  Now, I realize it really
just reflects how shabby and ill-mannered the flamer is...and I simply
don't read anything on the net written by people who have nothing but
