    d%&$** unions

    I still haven't read through the 500 or so
    messages posted here in the last couple weeks, but I have
    reviewed some of them. It still bothers me, cleo, when you
    make personal derogatory attacks on the old gang. Last
    I heard, you and nic were actually somewhat
    enamored of each other; now it's turned nasty.

    Cleo, you don't need to do that. The longevity of
    posting here by a number of folks gives us something in
    common in addition to the pain of owning this stock.
    It's price is the same for all of us. Actually, you
    and nic had something in common over a year ago -
    namely, distrust of Doc. The old "Happy Brigade" has even
    evidenced a fair amount of respect for you.

    Now we
    have a new post-disaster (CC) group of "regulars"
    that's even more diversified than last year's. Someone
    like Brendy adds a lot of objective information, yet
    you go out of your way to attack him, too. It's one
    thing to be the "useful idiot" (a role we all get to
    play periodically); it's quite another to be
    indiscriminately vicious.

    Nic, the psychology of these
    boards is certainly curious. It's kind of like politics
    - it sucks us in and brings out behavior in us that
    we ourselves wouldn't have expected.
