Yup. I knew the short version wouldn't quite carry the respectful tone I intended. The long version just gave me an error, though, so I guess we're stuck.

Bill, I was trying to respond, but it's not working. *sigh* So here's the short version. First, I did want to thank you most heartily for taking the civil approach rather than the flame-thrower. And I think I've come to the conclusion that some of us will just never see what the problem is. Probably like RJ, I thought he presented it quite positively (even pushing my limits on what I care for in my fantasy), so it seems decidedly odd to hear such negative reaction. I suspect that short of becoming something I'm totally not, I never will understand what you felt was handled so badly. Like Aiel and Wetlanders: the words are the same, but the culture is so different the meanings don't quite match anymore, and each thinks the other is a complete nutcase. :)
