You people all make me sick.  ACK! PUKE!  Some of the people on this 
mailing list don't know English as a primary language and you are 
assuming the person who originally posted this message know english 
as the rest of you children.  That is EXACTLY what you are acting 
like.  I don't know what country any of you are from, nor do I care.  
But with comments like that you are a disgrace and a discredit to 
your respective nations.  Assuming that everyone should speak your
language and write it as well is a horrifing thought.  And then you 
degrade these people for it?  I bet you are the type of people that 
if you saw someone of a different race, religion or anything else you 
would bad mouth them.  Disgusting little Hitlers... :(

To all of you that are not English speaking and would like to post on 
this mailing list I, for one would encourage you to do so.

And on behalf of the American population, which I served so proudly 
in our Armed Forces to keep the rights of those we serve, I 
appologise for some of the ignorance.  

Didn't your parents teach you, "If you can't say anythnig nice, don't 
say anything at all?" and if Ignorance is bliss, you must be in 
telnet: 7777
