I'm not hostile to anybody.

I'm quite cool already, thank you.

Oh dear.

I'm not responsible for your lack of understanding.

My sig is irrelevant to the matter under discussion, and the point I
made was not political - try reading it again.

>Please, instead of just saying "No, you're wrong, it wasn't
>political." Please try to explain what you meant,

I meant:

        neither am I only interested in serving the hypothetical
        interests of "mega-corporations".

        (Organisations who, for all we know, might be strongly against
        allowing easy currency conversion on pages they've tailored to -
        and discounted for - a specific locale).

>and how it could be  interpreted in a non-political way.

I can't see how it can be interpreted in a political way; and I'm
certainly not in the futile business of trying to prove negatives.

>I'm sure we can all behave like  the mature, intelligent adults we are

I'll be glad when some individuals start to, certainly.
