I heartily second the latter... I'm still hanging around cross-eyed to see the answer to Sran
's puzzling comment, though.
Warm if wary handshakes all around for now, and sorry for the tense atmosphere. I must admit I find it difficult to accommodate people's expectations on the nuances of responses (see post #31 here), but this time around it was doubly difficult: on one hand, I had to ridicule the idea that Carol Marcus
would be a rabid soldier-hater, on the other, I had to fend off the idea that this would be related to me
playing the role of soldier-hater (specifically Kirk-hater) in that other thread. I think I failed miserably in the latter.
EDIT: Whoops, seems I got the second reply already... Response in next post.
