I was criticizing the article itself! I have no issue with the fact that you had raised and addressed the issue of their article about Exeter. I recall that you and I have 'crossed sabers' on at least one occasion in the past, but this is, by no means, a repeat of that exchange! Peter NUFORC Listen to 'Strange Days...
