Hi Wanda,
    I have had the same problem. When giving an opinion I occasionally give it
personally unless it is one I take a hard line on or I feel I am not alone in
having. I dont mean to defeat the purpose of the histonet but I'd rather bend a
little than catch flack from someone who may disagree with me and end up all
stressed out over a d*#n  computer. :-)
