No it's most welcome! As long as you say I am *right* :-)

Seriously, the whole 3x set of rules is about long quotations of previous
posts, and a,b,c... are variations of reasons for them. I agree that
agreeing is desirable and it also improves the entire atmosphere of the
discussion. It's much nicer than saying "nonsense" or "wrong again". Let's
express our agreements as well as disagreements.
