RE : [HP3000-L] OT: Civil Discourse
I also posted the following on Ron's blog on The Newswire.
Ron, I could not agree more. Though I've more or less left the 3000 arena,
but for the occasional service, I used to read HP3000-L with taste, even
envy. But too much is too much. I'm done with my HP3000-L daily reading.
I hope reason prevails in the future.
BTW, aren't there more appropriate blogs for such rants ?
