Thanks Paul for the clarification.  I too would never put myself in a
class anywhere near those listed above.  In fact (and obviously), I
would put you closer to them than I.  No need to apologize with that

I agree - I wasn't intending to fuel any flames either.  I personally
(as stated) don't care either way.  My main point was to help another
employer know that it was an issue with some people.  I too think it's
silly, and in some ways hurts the community more than it helps.

It's no problem.  Having worked with you before, I know you are a fine
person.  I would consider yourself as one of those you mention of
being one of the finest programmers in the valley.  It was not my
intention either to argue and I hope you too have not been offended.
