Granted, I may have taken this wrong because I've been wrestling with a
recalcitrant server for the last 24 hours, but this came across
(especially with the lack of a smiley, which it desperately needed) as
needlessly condescending and rude.

I cannot speak for anyone else, but when the call went out for opinions, I
gave mine.  In my case (and for a few of my co-workers), the current
locations for the SPUG meetings make it not worth our while to go to,
especially if we're going to be car-pooling and driving from Sultan to
Everett to Seattle, back to Everett, back to Sultan.

522/Lake City Way, while often a good way to go, is often a lousy way to
go as well.  It's a toss-up.

Input was requested.  Input was given.  Apparently, I brought up a valid
point, gievn the amount of discussion that has ensured from it, as well as
a few really stellar ideas that have resulted.

Snide remarks just get in the way and don't do anyone any good.  They
often make it more difficult to come to consensus.  Can we please make
sure they don't enter into the discussion, lest someone get offended?
