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?*
