I quite agree. Some time back many of the members advised forbearance
and tolerance under the posting "How to identify a true Bhagavatha."
I think this is a similar case.I am sure that the member who had sent the 
offending posting would have realised that his choice of words was 
unfortunate,and that the other members are unanimously at variance with his 
views.That should be enough for all of us.
