My reason for calling your comments silly has nothing to do with my not
agreeing with you. In fact, as far as I'm concerned the comment in
question is not something to even agree or disagree with. My choice of
'silly' was because I thought that was nicer than 'trollish'.

Now please, let's stop this. I don't think anyone really wants to read
this on the list.
