Let's stop wasting time. Melvin can be very provocative, but there is no 
reason to bicker with him. Out of 536 subscribers, we have exactly one 
African-American, retired auto-worker/unreconstructed Stalinist. If 
there were 15 or so like him raising hell from day to day, I'd probably 
have to be putting out flame wars all the time and/or ejecting people. 
If you are disturbed by things he says, my *strong* suggestion is to 
ignore him.
