I don't care if you are being literal or figurative. I am really tired 
of you likening people on this list to Stakhanov one day and to storm 
troopers on the next. If you were as verbally hostile on a list for 
little league coaches, you'd get unsubbed from there as well. Stop 
trying to justify yourself and learn to moderate your tone and your 
language. We are on the verge of 500 subscriptions and we need to 
concentrate our discussions on important questions facing our movement. 
I don't have the time or the patience to ride herd on you.
