I definitely think we did the right thing then, the only question
remaining as far as I am concerned is whether we did the right
thing by letting you back in.  I have yet to get any email from
anyone telling me they think I did the right thing.  You don't
want to know how much email I've recieved from different individuals
wondering if I had a screw loose for letting you back in.

I think you are being really weird now.  If there is some holy
war being fought between chess programmers and end users,  they
forgot to contact me to tell me about it.  Maybe I'll read about
it in the news tonight.  I'm pretty upset that no one told me
about it.  It must be a conspiracy so secret they forgot to tell
the chess programmers.  It seems you are the only one who knows
about it.
