I personally believe that notwithstanding your "delicate" irony, I knew full well what both "extraneous" and "punctuation" mean, except that "extraneous" refers to something that does not belong to somewhere, whereas I coulnd't think of a single spot where my punctuation was inappropriate. More precisely I still can't think of any. Just taking your own topical example, the "?!?" at the end of the sentence did indeed constitute an attempt at making the recipient feel belittled in public. It did intentionally because it was meant as an educational aid for him not to behave in such a way as to be belittled in public again. But I wouldn't call that "disrespect". Disrespect is something completely different that takes place when you cross the line of the personal insults. Of course different people will have different thresholds, and appearently yours is lower than mine. I just don't mind: I don't consider you a troll, but you're certainly a whiner; I've seen endless discussions going on with them, and I've occasionally taken part to some. Needless to say, it's completely moot. Not differently from all those other people, you speak about "helpful technical information," but evidence is that you have provided err, well... none! OTOH, within my well defined limits, I think I contributed enough to this community, albeit unfortunately I've not been much active as of late. So I'm not answering any more to further provocations about alleged disrespect or similar idiocies: you have the last word, if you like...
