Hi, Jeff,

Thanks for the clarification, but SERIOUSLY, I didn't interpret your post
negatively, and I wasn't actually referring to anyone's post in particular.
I just thought I'd preface my post with that statement because it must seem
to many people on the list that I'm obsessive-compulsive about safety
issues. To tell the truth, maybe I am a bit overly cautious, and I honestly
don't mind if people think that, but some folks must think "Oh boy, here we
go again..." when they read some of my warnings, cautions, caveats,
howevers, etc. Again, I appreciate your concern, but no feathers were
ruffled at all.
