Re: Names of fish and other heated debates

I can't argue with the implicit logic there. :-)
I think it's great that the worst name calling that came up in this
last prolonged argument is "Jerk." Impolite and technically 4 letters,
but in the vernacular, rather tame as deprecations go. Compared to
some of the other arguments in recent times, this one never turned into
a barfight. Of course, I a assuming "troll" was intended as a verb and
not a noun ;-) .
If we keep up this level of dialogue, we might make it 4 weeks without
any really hot flames or contentions turning into combat -- a feat we
haven't mastered since last fall. ;-)
Good for us.
