Um, I should note that while I occasionally tolerate people on SL4 who
are in the process of going insane - especially if I'm the one who
formulated the question that drove them over the brink of madness -
people who go insane *and* use ad-hominem arguments will get booted.
People who are insane in a cheerfully polite fashion - that works for
me. The politeness part is important, though.
