Thank you, Ill take a look at them.

Youre being WAY too sensitive.  It was asked tongue in cheek...and was a
question, not a declarative statement.  I did not accuse you of anything.

I dont see how a question can be construed as libel anyway.  Do you know
that it can?  Have you heard of some precedent case where asking a question
of someone has been judged to be libel?  It would be interesting to
know...though the way our society is going, I wouldnt be surprised to find
out it has!

Id say thats true.

Well, no, I dont, and never said I did.  I know what I know, but I also
know what I dont know.  I dont understand how the Foveon works fully, that
s why I ask a lot of questions about it.  I have gotten mostly party line
Foveon generated answers/hype, and also some good information from others
who seem to have the same questions I do, and are thinking outside of the
party line.

Hum.  If you are speaking of a general populous, I would agree.  I dont
think that is the case of people on this list certainly.  Though not
everyone here knows enough to know how to separate hype from reality WRT
digital imaging claims and its certainly to be expected that some of this
stuff is over peoples heads...even on this list.

I always try to do my best ;-)
