Subject: Apology for tone


Just a quick note to apologize for the tone of two messages that I sent
yesterday.  I was rather stressed by some things (that have nothing to do
with CryoNet, or even online life in general) and so I came across as more
snippish than intended.

Note that I stand by the basic content of these messages.  For instance, I
still reject Rafal's proposition that I must give away all that I own or
else I am an envious hypocrite for saying that I care about the issue of
global poverty.

However, I am apologizing because I believe that the content of the
messages could have been expressed more diplomatically.

Thanks, and long life...

	"Many young Czechs say that their direct experience with
         communism and capitalism has taught them that the two
         systems have something in common:  they both centralize
         power in the hands of a few, and they both treat people
         as if they are less than fully human."
