That's one of the problems here. Along with the emotional
mudslinging here is the equally bad habit of taking personally
statements that aren't explicitly personal. If I make a
personal comment, it will have a name on it. When I make a
comment on an idea, I don't appreciate it when others interpret
it personally, or impute motives to me that aren't stated, or
assume I'm attacking an idea other than the one presented.

Waht I say is precisely what I mean, in plain fucking English.
No more, no less. I may not always be clear, and I may not
always be right, but I try never to be covert. That may not
apply to everyone here, but it certainly should, and we should
not assume covert motives without evidence.
