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.

I don't know who they are...but they don't seem to be contributing much but
vitriol!

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

I have kept in touch with ***ia...and value the information I receive
from her.  She is one of the "treasures" of the Internet!
