No, it's not that at all.   It's my estimation
of your contribution on this list at this time.
Let's take it off list if you like, for a few
days, and I can extend my patience there a bit.
I've seen you say things here and there that 
make me suspect this could well be an anomaly.
But the actual discussion your raising here
on the list is (again, perhaps quite accidentally)
beyond silly.  lord@emf.net  Do be in touch,
if you like.

Let's (try, for a finite period of time, to) 
sort it out off list if that is how you feel.
