Your scholarly missives are the least of the trouble.  I find them 
interesting, although the theology doesn't really interest me that much 
to begin with.

Your reasons are certainly reasonable, and even noble.

I'm just tired of hearing about it all.  My problem, not anyone else's.  
I'm also worried that keeping this topic on the "front page", so to 
speak, does more harm than good to our community.  But here I am, 
flogging this dead horse with the rest of you.
