Re: Re: Because nice counts

I agree Linda, it seems some people are just trying to see how nasty they can be.  I find that they usualy are quite meak in person.  I wonder about their emotional stability, and self esteem issues.  Annie G.

The paragraph is a wonderful invention.  Perhaps more than any
other device, it shows consideration for your reader and keeps
