in thread Why me? Why not Ovid? (discussion)

Anyone who read my recient retort knows how I feel about that. Let me clarify: beyond being terse but still providing useful information (which some people might perceve as being unsocial, but is fine for technical work <g>), but using phrases like "wouldn't you be able to grasp the concept..." or "you look like a moron" is something different entirely. I beleive that the group (when it is a community, not an open mob like the newsgroups) should take that person to task for it, in the same venue. Maybe he's having a real bad week and doesn't realize he's taking it out on everyone, maybe he's trying for a different effect and not realizing that it's insulting.

    The student lashes out in anger.
