I had about a dozen people, online and off, basically rip me a new one
about my tone of email, what I wrote, my tone, my word usage, not
playing well with others, etc. related to that email. Basically they

being aware of the past nature of discussions, what has been said off
list and so on.

After the first few people made their comments, I could understand
their concerns, and realized that I was far too abrupt, and snarky,
with both you and Maciej. However, after the tenth person corrected
me, the issue went beyond being helpful to being abusive. Particularly
after how I was treated when another person accused me of all sorts of
bad behavior in another discussion I was attempting to have, on the
nature of the discussion related to "hidden". There was no way I was
going to even attempt to respond to your reply and open myself up to
yet more of the same.

public-html email list, because it was specifically about technical

apply to you, too.



Otherwise, I would suggest that you
