      Gee, if we assessed a "fine" of $1.00 for each instance of judging
      another, how much money could we collect just from this listserv for
      charitable purposes, or building funds, or for the persecuted
      Churches in the Holy Land or other worthy causes?

      what an idea!

      I'll offer $1 for this post, alone!
