Or vice versa.  Must Mr. Reed "poison the well" of every discussion?

I've fixed his top-posting (again), and his multipart alternative (again).

The comment was *not* helpful, as it bore no relation to the query, and
his proof by assertion is not good argument.  Nor is his condescension
appropriate behavior.

Going forward, I'll do my best to ignore his posts, as long as they don't
interfere with discussion on the merits.
