That's flat out slander. You may want to look into writing a very
scolding letter to the company (Rapport, I assume).
It's pretty hypocritical that he calls us a bunch of nerds. Yet, when
you consider each third party's expertise, the esoteric nature of it
lends to a qausi-nerdishness about it. Case and point: the Green Party's
instance on using alternate fuel sources. (No bad feelings for the Greens)
"This is not something you'd see in the UK..." And yet the PPUK is a
burgeoning party. The Brit makes the stipulation that the conventional
supercedes the comtemporary voter's inclinations. This is an obvious
endorsement of a polarized system.
Nevertheless, good find Rick.
