Funny, I've been around this list since near the beginning, and I've never seen Boise call for anybody's ejection.  Several times, he's retreated into the ozone to get away from bullshit like yours.  In the last six, seven years I think he's been regular maybe 30% of the time, due to other responsibilities such as school and actually producing product, and he's done fantastic at both.

Midtown in what city? -- if it's Manhattan (the only place on the planet where "Midtown" actually has meaning), I'll come collect it at the curb and bring it over to Jersey.  Just tell me the day.

I think somebody got pissed off somewhere, but I can't follow the threads well enough to figure it out.  Further effort is not worth my time.  Goodbye, Charles.  (I hope I can call you Charles -- I hate nicknames and diminutives of real names).  The rest of us will just hack on (except Dennis -- but he did more hacking per month for pushing a decade than most of us can think of in a lifetime and he just wants to do music now -- damned good music in my arrogant opinion, I've seen it performed).  (The only bigger hacker I can think of than Dennis would be Steve Ciarcia, but they fed off each others' ideas with profit to everybody back in the day).

The two halves of the ruling Party are arguing over who gets to be the Top this time.  Either wins, Top or Bottom, they both win by the situation.  For us individuals, BOHICA.
