The authors of off topic rants will soon be ignored. Their questions to list 
members will go unanswered as we gradually stop reading their posts. Most of 
us are here for specific questions and answers and will quickly loose interest 
in off topic tirades. No need to ask civil member to leave; just stop reading 
his posts. 
It is not quite the same as a board meeting where one is in the same physical 
room with some lost soul blabbering on; here we have a choice as to what we 
read and what we delete. Knowing Hagar rattles on a bit at times, you can 
delete his post at will, or take the good with the bad - your call. 
And one individual's failure to make the connection between diesel Rabbits 
and the political scene is no criteria for world acceptance. Some of us see it 
Rant on Hagar!
