Barbara & All,
I agree that it's time to put this "baby to bed" and move on. It's not the
first mistake anyone has made, and it sure won't be the last! I have
learned in dealing with people that they should be given the benefit of the
doubt, until proven otherwise, and I know that we all would appreciate
folks treating us the same way, so thanks for explaining Barbara, and your
explanation is accepted.
I hope that folks will think no more of it, and that it will be dropped. I
personally know what it feels like to be flamed "off-list", and when I was
first into genealogy on the net, I pulled something stupid and heard about
it, in no uncertain terms! It didn't do anything to help the situation
other than to discourage me and make me feel like quitting. None of us on
this list want that to happen to anyone else, so I appreciate all of you
understanding and moving on.
