I find the timing on Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Why does this happen?
to be very appropriate.
This is (excepting the above) in response to the closest
that I have seen merlyn
come to flaming someone in the
last bit, during which time he has been going through an
uncommon amount of stress.
merlyn both can and does rub people the wrong way. But
I maintain what I noticed when I first came here. He has
a classic Usenet style that you see in many old-timers.
Terse. Accurate. And easily misunderstood by people
who read in what is not there.
If you disagree with me then please do as Coleoid did,
go back and try to find the nodes by merlyn that show
him at his most arrogant, rudest self. Other than the
ones which (like the above) show him getting upset, what
specifically do you find?
That much, eh?*
