Ginny-
"Steve:
I am not sure why a convresation about filtering is so upsetting to you.
makes for continued education in coffee, water, filter knowledge."

Gee, Ginny, I don't even know Steve, but it didn't sound like he was duly
upset over water filtration. Maybe it was because there was little
"educational" value in beating that dead horse? I don't know if you noticed
or even wanted to, but it had descended into "I'm right, you're wrong"
vernacular days ago and I think Steve (and others, me included) were just
ready to move on to another subject. If Raybob wants to use distilled
water, terrific! If you want to use creek water, hooray! To each his own.
