You vow what you want to, but don't drag me into something which is
Ill-conceived and would put what I'm free to post at the mercy of
some "committee" which knows better than I do what should be posted
and what shouldn't. Try to post to some of the moderated groups
sometime with ideas or attitudes which the moderators don't like to
see what it's like. As for me, I'll be the arbiter of what I should
post and what I shouldn't, thank you very much.

Really? If someone was looking for something like that to use in
weaponry, guess what they'd say? "Thank you, infidel, Allah will
soon reward you for your stupidity."
The point is that _you_ made the decision that your circuit was
innocuous, that's as it should be, and I expect to play by the same
rules regarless of what you or anyone else thinks.
