	A nice land-grab of the moral high-ground :-) Of course I don't even
want to play fair and nice - perhaps you forget: I am evil
incarnate ! :-)

	Ultimately, AFAICS this is not a particularly acrimonious debate; what
are you taking offense at ? 'ravingly-anti' ? that is rather tounge-in-
cheek; to-rave[1] is transparently amusingly extreme and almost totally
inapplicable to what we've been seeing :-) Either way: what it means is:

	"I'd love to get some feedback from the people most vehemently opposed
to the initial idea"

	which is (presumably) hard to fault ? and I had imagined somewhat
transparently obvious.

	But, perhaps it was just my spelling that offended; then again if I've
offended someone I was referring to in this way - potentially they can
stick up for themselves :-)



[1] - cf. 'rabid enthusiasm' etc. etc. substitute 'extremely' for
'ravingly' and you get a more uninteresting screed.
