          I hope you don't take offense at anything said on this list. My philosophy about this is summarized in something I wrote last December that has since been immoratlized in the "fortunes" package:

 > library(fortunes)
 > fortune("Spencer Graves")

Our great-great grandchilren as yet unborn may read some of the stupid questions and/or answers that I and perhaps others give from time to time. I'd
rather get flamed for saying something stupid in public on this list than to continue to provide substandard service to the people with whom I work because
I perpetrated the same mistake in an environment in which no one questioned so
effectively my errors.
