If you are honestly claiming your grasp of the English language is
really so weak as to fail to understand that these mean the same thing,
then I'm sorry for calling you pedantic.

This is not a democracy. You're free to ignore me. Or even remove me
from your "tzdb at yahoogroups.com" list, though that will mainly have the
effect of preventing _me_ from seeing _your_ emails if you find yourself
banned from the tz list again. (For the record, I did not agree with
your being banned, but it does say something about the relative
thickness of the ice we are each standing on)
