>Michael--it's not *what* you say, it's *how* you sometimes say it.
I don't think that you can seperate the two, that medium intimately effects
a message to a fundamental degree, HOW you say something is in effect WHAT
you are saying. Saying "I oppose the US's policy in regards to East Timor"
is radically differnt than burning a flag in front of the Indonesian
Embassy, The two statements are NOT the same.
However even if they were somehow seperable, isn;t the underlying thrust of
the message the more important aspect? A truth is still a truth if it is
written on watermarked stationary or screamed out by a drunken bum. If you
limit your allowable perceptions to those which do not offend than you may
miss many things.

It certainly seemed to be what YOU were saying in the earlier post that I
replied to, and it is something i disagree with rather strongly. Are you
backing away from this statement? If not how about explaining it? Hoe much
should one have to play in order to get some say?
