I have the moral duty to note that this off-topic thread started when I
responded _privately_ to Phil on the subject of extraterritoriality,
unfortunately using an example of U.K. extraterritoriality relating to
their attempt to control, via the UN, private ownership of firearms in
the U.S.  I presume that Phil assumed that my note came via the quattro
list, and responded to the whole list by addressing gun misuse, not
extraterritoriality, thereby causing the present uproar.  (I receive the
digest, so I can easily tell if a message is private.  I sometimes
forget that others may not be able to determine this.)  I apologize for
not making clear, in my note to Phil, that I was responding privately.
