That it was made by someone who doesn't appear to have been here for more than five minutes, and has seen presumably all of one of Thusnelda's posts, is what is most grating.
Where was that implication? (insidious? really?) Greg thought Thesnulda had an ax to grind- and he stated that outright. For that, you attack HIS agenda? Do you seriously not see the hypocrisy?

Doesn't mean you have to agree, jman, but there it is. Will you acknowledge that I haven't treated every first-time poster with suspicion?
I think swoon_queen said it better than me. Have your suspicions (justified or not). Just take a look in the mirror once in a while. And, no, I don't accuse you of blanket suspicion. But, really, what was so wrong with these posts?
