[OS X TeX] Baffled and annoyed

   I have read numerous post to this list that at some point (usually  
well into at least dozens of quote levels) that said well, no, I  
refuse to put stuff where everybody else does, and expects to find  
it, and that despite my using of Fink and other incompatible private  
compilations (or my own personal preference that important files  
should be held in ./trash), all should just work damnit!

   Enough.  You want to walk on the edge, dance on the fine point,  
play with fire, well fine.  But I do not think we on this list should  
have to wade through (despite my e-mail filtering) unending  
complaints and demands for fixes.  I have used LaTeX on the Mac as  
long as it has been possible to do so.  No complaints---it has always  
worked just fine (OzTeX et al.  Sci Word anyone?) as along as I  
didn't also demand that it balance my cheque-book or some other  
personal peccadillo that in some system/editor was also  
accommodated.  This is the TeX on Mac OS X mailing list.  Yes, on  
some obscure or even popular systems it also emptied your septic tank  
on a regular basis.  I don't care.  And, I suspect, nobody else does  

  Oh, and what is the thread?  Start at line 2.
Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
