Tempest in a teapot!
This morning when I read Bashir’s message very quickly, I initially thought it was not only off-topic but off-base: claiming that the deaths were due to not having renewable resources. But Bashir is normally such a reasonable member of this forum, I couldn’t believe that he would use such poor judgment and draw such unscientific conclusions, so I read it a second and then a third time, and realized that isn’t what he was trying to say at all. I think his point was simply that—as gulf-coast hurricane victims can also attest—natural disasters, storms, etc., lead to power outages on a regular basis. If everyone had an emergency “off the grid” backup power supply (or heating, if living up north) and lighting source, they’d be prepared for a “rainy day”, as Bashir put it. Read that way, I think Bashir makes a good point and it is on-topic. Wouldn’t you agree?
As for the 8 attachments, if you view the message in a full HTML reader, I think you’ll see that they are just embedded icons, etc., in article that he attached. It isn’t as if Bashir attached a bunch of stuff to his text message.
So... everyone take a deep breath and be glad you aren’t living in Missouri , and let’s chill out Texas style. J
