Interesting choice of words. I don't think there is any sign that A = B in 
the original message. Claiming hatred on someone else's behalf is in my 
opinion somewhat rude. But perhaps there is something lost in translation.

Presumption of someone else's feelings does not help much either. (if you 
happen to know some of these things by talking with the OP in private, 
please do not share that here... unless you wish to prove the OP's point)

That is by definition slanted as the informer has a vested interest...

How can your posts be anything less than "ideological outbursts"? Do look 
at the language you are using.

I for one, am finding this thread disturbing. The original message was 
fine, for information only. The response(s) have pretty much been over the 
top. Please just stop.

What? a pay cheque? (sorry perhaps that was uncalled for, but it is the 
first thing that comes to mind... posting links from outside the 
advertizing community might have been better received)
