  I disagree.  I believe the point of this list is to discuss and share our
passion for hot food.  But that does not mean that you should lie about your
tolerence to look macho.  If you have ever witnessed someone trying to be
macho by taking more heat then they can handle, you will know exactely what I
mean when I say they look far more foolish then macho.  Not everyone who is a
chile-head can handle the very hottest peppers, in fact, anyone who says there
is no pepper too hot for them, is lying.  We are all fans of the peppers at
different levels, thats what makes this list interesting.  I am not saying
that the intent of that comment was to offend, but by accident, you may have
alienated some of the most loyal and devoted chile heads.
     Something for us all to think about,
