Gospel? Kind of a colloquialism derived from a religious term, meaning
"absolute" or "not open to debate".

I've been quite vocal in this discussion because I do believe that this
*would* be a good thing for SURBL. But it isn't just me!

Actually, I was responding to a genuine interest from several readers of
this very list to get something set up and try it out. My "proposal" was
mostly just a public summary of the good ideas presented publicly and
off-list, and had little to do with my own "feelings" on the matter...

OK, I'll grant you that. I had no intention of ruffling the feathers of
any "SURBL staff". You have my apologies.

No problem.

Thanks! I'll take you up on that! :-)
