From what I have seen of Karen's comments on this list (and I have never met
or am likely to meet her so I am just surmising!!) I would say that she is
the last person I would think of as being manipulated!!

I am not surprised people are shocked. Whilst the plaintiff may think they
are right, morally they are way off the mark!! I thought common sense would
prevail in all this but looking at some of the conversations that have taken
place on Compuserve IMO there has been a lot of baiting by both sides.
Having said that certain employees of the plaintiff that use Compuserve
should act professionally rather than behaving like a bickering school boy.

At this point I should say that I, probably like a lot of others, always
plan to get around to this but never do!! I have put this on my things to do
this and will endeavour to have it completed by the end of next week!!
Come on folks...These guys give us free advice in their own time. A few have
published articles!! I for one would have struggled to set up a planted tank
without this digest!!
