I agree, it shouldn't matter.  For some people, it does, and that was my

I'm sorry, I thought you were responding to something I had written (since 
you quoted something from what I had written).  This was clearly my mistake 
since you couldn't be responding to what I wrote.

I would never say that poor people should not play in the SCA. In fact what 
you were  quoting was pointing out that they do, and while it's easy to 
dismiss them (the whole "maybe people who are poor shouldn't be wasting 
their few funds on a luxury like the SCA" thing, since this is an argument 
that has appeared in the past, during the non-member surcharge thing, as I 
mentioned -earlier- in the same message), the contrasting arrogant 
condescension in the latter part of the sentance towards those people who DO 
have money (much less the over all tone of the message) was a hint that the 
first part of the sentance was not written as a criticism of poor people.

That being the case, I have no idea what you are talking about.

I'm sorry, I don't understand the first sentance clearly.  If I read it 
straight, then I should assume that you are suggesting that I have forgotten 
how to look forward to something fun that you love to do.  If that is what 
you meant, please verify this and I will respond to that point
