I guess that could be amusing if I thought I was giving Rich "permission" to do something he didn't require my permission to do. I meant it more as a polite pre-emptive apology if the thread was somehow out of line, and as a polite show of respect to Rich (these are after all his comments we are compiling) even if it wasn't.
These are Rich's comments, might as well tip my hat to his ultimate right of control over them.
