Re: [ARSCLIST] at this rate, won't be much to archive soon enough

Hi Nigel

Welcome to the ARSClist.  I, too, am a foreigner, but living in the US.
Angie was the only one who came to your defense really.  I am sorry that you
got insulted in such a way.  I have found, since being here, that some
people tend to YELL when they actually speak to you face to face and don't
actually care what you are saying. Maybe that is because they are unable to
understand me, as I have an accent, or maybe they were not brought up in
polite families.  Some people also attack you for the silliest of things,
and when I first read your post I wondered if you had a sight problem.  

My suggestion to the list is, actually READ (gee, I yelled) the content and
get off the high and mighty horse you think you are riding.  Nigel made some
VERY GOOD (yelling again) points. 

Hang in there Nigel and don't let the ignorant get to you.  In my opinion,
you have nothing to apoligise about.

Sorry I am a foreigner,not from the U.S.A. so I never realised large
print to assist those with eyesight problems was regarded as screaming
in the U.S.A..
But by insulting people and not focussing on the music side,you will
only antagonise people, the chappie who was highly insulting to me
whose name I will not mention.I don't need any E mail  guff  from you
about being an idiot.I am not.I  have a University Degree.So grow up
you child.
