Well Frank, you stated that you didn't want any religious wars, but
I'm afraid your brief comment (enclosed), at the very least, has all the
characteristics of wellknown initial hostilities.
The author of the document is Fred Avolio. And Fred Avolio is
as far as I am (and thousands of others with me) concerned within
the World top of firewall experts.
Before attacking Fred in such an open forum, I'd appreciate that you
consult with him first. If you want 'beef', I'm sure he can help you out.
Please, be a bit more thoughtful, and show some respect for peers.
