	And no one is saying you should change your ways, Ciaran.  My 
ways are not much different from yours.  I was brought up to behave as a 
gentleman (i.e. opening doors, paying for dinner, etc).  Ask anyone who 
knows me well and they will attest to that fact.  However, I also realize 
that those attitudes are not always accepted.  I will let my girlfriend 
pay for dinner if she insists, I will let her open the door for me.  
(Admittedly most of this comes from the fact that I know I cannot win an 
argument with her.  I just usually make up for it in other ways.)  Ladies 
should have the option of doing things their way as well.

	I agree. None of this should degenerate into personal attacks.  
We all have different opinions and we are entitled to them.  Those who 
resort to this just have to be dealt with in the appropriate manner.  
Ignore them...they are not worth dealing with.
