    Just an FYI.

    There are plenty of people on this listserve who support one of the
    candidates you refer to as "clowns", and by disparaging them so, I think you
    actually do your candidate a disservice. I've seen a lot of what I consider
    namecalling coming from the Nader campaign, even from Ralph himself, and it
    disturbs me.

    There is plenty of room in this campaign for reasonable and thoughtful
    people to reach different conclusions, and I expect my fellow progressives,
    especially, to be respectful in the way we carry out this discourse.

    Thanks for the opportunity you provided me to express this.
