Ed, I just removed that post at your request, as well as several following it quoting or asking about it. Hope this helps.

I guess you got your wish, because I cannot find the post. But I do vaguely remember one that I thought was, as you say, atypical. As I remember I just assumed your wife was looking over your shoulder.

But maybe I am remembering wrong. Now, I wish I could see it again. Inflammation is what we need around here.
