I didn't. I could have cross-posted instead of multi-posted, but I didn't
want some whiny netkop to start complaining, because, as we all know,
cross-posting tends to attract the attention of the anally retentive.
Imagine how glad I am that the decision I made (to multi, rather than cross
post) resulted in congratulatory notices of my netiquette.

As penance, I shall sit on a pile of broken glass, wear a hair-shirt, flog
myself with a leather whip pre-soaked in vinegar, and stick kitchen utensils
in my groin at regular intervals. You want to try it, mate. You sound as
though you could use it. Meh!
