Matthew, I hope you realize your post, above, is very difficult to read.
There is no distinction between your own words and those of the "communique" you're referring to.
Most casual readers unfamiliar with your style would have no idea where one stops and the other starts.
There are no paragraph indents or skipped spaces to separate paragraphs, like this.
Please consider re-organizing what you posted so new visitors can make heads-or-tails out of what you're trying to present.
I just went to the source site and found that the words I had thought were yours are actually those of Louie Verrechio.
His formatting makes it all comprehensible -- but when you just copy-and-paste that into the CI window, all the formatting disappears.
It would be a great help if CI allowed tab stops so we could offset quotations instead of having to rely on quote boxes, which are very annoying.
