I won't say anything at all about diatomaceous earth (oops!) but I'll jump
in; why not?

Now here is a perfectly excellent example of a fine lambaste!

With an opening like that, do you really want an answer? ;-)

How can I resist that one!? Ok, I just have to post a response.

I bet that Sharon was objecting to the slightly sarcastic answer to
Seweryn's question. I don't think it qualified as a real lambaste because it
wasn't overtly mean; just making a little bit of cynical humour & seeming to
imply that Seweryn doesn't understand how a diatomaceous earth filter works.
I think it was a serious question & in good humour, I'm treating Scott's
question seriously too.

As for packing the filter box tightly with floss in hopes that it will
filter smaller particles, it won't. You were making that part up Scott.

Another constructive criticism (for everyone): please edit your posting
quotes to remove anything not directly pertinent to your response especially
those annoying signatures & disclaimers. There's almost no need to quote the
entire previous message. You can even summarize instead of quoting!!
