THANK YOU PHAEWRYN!!!

Seriously- Eric Richards should be banned from this list for that terribly
insensitive, insulting, ableist remark.  I am disabled and I was shocked
that I even saw that remark on this list.  There are plenty of other places
to display that kind of nasty behavior.  We don't need it here.
