Joe, could you please post to the correct mailing lists?  This is a
thread from WAI GL and you posted a reply -- as you have with others --
to the WAI IG list.  Now, as both lists have open archives I'm not
protesting on basis of "privacy" or the like, but simply one of
practicality -- there is no context for IG readers to understand where
this thread came from and what it's about, especially since you did
not indicate this was originally on the GL list.  Wholesale thread
migration is usually not desirable, and should not be done in

A few months ago you were berating "supposed Internet experts" for
not being able to use their email programs correctly [*] -- and yet
your mis-replies seem to be a constantly recurring problem.  Can you
please at least _try_ to correct this, Joe?

To answer the point raised in your reply:  Many times we do demand
such high level of accountability from others, that it becomes a good
reminder to say "hey, I'm not perfect".  If it bothers you that I
wrote about my emotions, well, I apologize for any offense.  As far
as continuous education, I agree, but it's not like I _shouldn't_
know the lesson by now myself.
