This is coming from the person who jumps down the throat of anyone  
who dares to post anything derogatory about Java.  (For example,  
saying that Java is a) not the greatest language ever, b) not the  
best language for task XYZ or c) slow.)


Note by the smiley face that I am teasing Bryan.

In all seriousness, its probably best not to make fun of someone for  
pointing things out, as each of us has, at one time or another,  
pointed something out that may seem trivial to someone else.  Top- 
posting, VIM is better than emacs (and vice-versa), not trimming,  
etc, etc.
