Boldfaced statements are parts of the original essay (or a subsequent reply) to which the respondent has directed his comments.

Italicized/emphasized comments prefaced by (R) are those of the respondent and are presented unedited.

My replies appear under the respondent's comments in blue text and are prefaced by my initials (MB).

(R) I have hated gum-chewing for all of my adult life. I always move away from gum chewers when I'm in crowded situations. I've thought I was completely weird to have such strong feelings about a seemingly innocent habit. So imagine my surprise to learn that I'm not alone in these feelings! Thanks so much for your website.
(MB) You're welcome! You're certainly not alone in your feelings. I think that a lot of people are finally getting fed up with the increase in barbaric gum chewing habits and feel that the time has come to make it known that the intrusive and disturbing noise and the yucky mess is not at all welcome.
