You, like many people, pay nost of your attention to the loud mouths and
idiots.  Those with an axe of some sort to grind, regardless of whether it's
based on fact or not, always shout the loudest.

We have a lot of those around here, many of whom hang here with the express
purpose of just being a pain in the arse.  We'd all be better off if they'd
just go kick the dog and get it out of ther system.  Instead, there must be
some perverse thrill in beating the horse.  It's a contest I suppose.

I agree with the suggestion that we form a sublist of badmouths and the
unhappy, publish it, and let anyone who wishes go there and get all the
negative input they can stand.  Then perhaps the rest of us (most of us, I
think would be the correct term) can continue to enjoy the radio in peace
and quiet.
