I was under the impression that flaming in the MMD (insulting
other authors) was cause for rejecting such articles. Yet in
digest 980516, I find this is not the case. Now I'm confused.
Allowing such strong opinions and insulting language serves
only to hurt peoples feelings unnecessarily. To the editors:
Please explain your reasoning for allowing DL Bullocks
article to be posted. Surely you didn't find his comments
'constructive', 'enlightening' or 'educational'.
And for the record, I don't know a single rebuilder that doesn't
have a few spare players laying around that are used for
spare parts. In the Navy, we called such spares "Queens" because
they gave of themselves for the betterment of 'the hive'. I still
use the same term and it still fits like a glove.
I challenge DL to lighten up! We're not talking about $50,000

[ Robbie came down from Etiwanda for the weekend so we could

[ decided to run everything since the traffic was pretty light
[ that night. In general, if its not rude, vulgar or libelous

[ sure didn't.
