Does there need to be another thread about decorum? Everyone makes 
mistakes and does stupid things.
I agree Karl took it to a whole new level but I certainly have screwed 
up before and so i know how easy it is for things to snowball out of 
control. This in no way excuses Karl's stubborness but let's at least 
try to be civilized. If we can't say anything nice or at least rib Karl 
in good humor let's not say anything and just do the delete thing. In 
the end no one is required to respond and responding just to be flat out 
negative says much about a person.
