Here's my theory.  Chris was making a snarky comment about the
original poster's s/GMT/UT/ comment.  But Corrina interpreted this as
a comment about *her* s/UT/UTC/ comment, and responded to Chris in the
same spirit.  They usually (always?) treat each other with respect
(and in fact Corrina is polite to list members in general, which is
appreciated.)
