  Well, IMO, there are insults of the in-your-face kind and then there are
  the more subtle, veiled type.  Am I to assume that you equate everyone who
  has contributed so far to this list as so much chopped liver?
  There are real-world people posting here, with real-world experiences,
  real-world expertise, and real-world opinions.  I have learned much from
  them, and hope to continue to do so... unmonitored and uncensored,
