peterroe - I'm not sure who your comments were aimed at, but please don't coarsen the debate with personal insults.
I'm sure others would share your point of view, but the tone of your message is unlikely to provoke sensible, measured responses on either side of the debate.
(If it was graham's post you were reacting to, I suspect that it may have been tongue in cheek...)
