And I don't really understand why they get so incensed about your left-
of-centre views, with which I don't agree but they're your views, not
mine. Equally, I find some of their views too right-wing for my taste,
but this is an *electronics* group, not a political forum, so we should
put the politics to one side and concentrate on the electronics, where
all of you, BS, JF and JT, have so much to offer. RSW, too, even though
he is so extreme sometimes that he's at the political 'point at
infinity', where communism and fascism become indistinguishable.
