For the record, I did not take Steve's comments as a personal attack.
Any harshness of tone was directed at my suggestion and not at me.

The harshness did sting, but that's my problem.  I think Steve was trying to
emphasize to the OP that he thought my suggestion was a VERY bad idea.

But I also appreciate your post, Yaakov.

Best wishes to you both, to the OP, and to everyone else,
