Welcome, newcomer Russ McClay.
One comment here. "dis" derives from "disrespect." Odd ambiguities
occasionally occur around "dis". For instance, I use email
distribution lists a lot, especially for on-campus groups. I call them
"dis" groups. I have to remember that some people think that those groups
must be verrrry strange!
