Remember that Fernando started a firestorm a couple of weeks ago with remarks
about women that could be taken the wrong way.  _those_ were technically not
offensive, as they contained no four-letter words.  But they _obviously_
offended some here, to the point that those offended had decided to not post
any more.

So just because it didn't include four-letter words, nor direct personal
insults, that doesn't mean it shouldn't be removed...  There are other sorts
of non-useful posts as well...

probably including most of this thread now that everyone has had their say...
