I find your posts very helpful, Ian, but replying to an off-list criticism
on-list is a flagrant breach of netiquette. Your critic was respectful
enough of you and the rest of the list to make his complaint privately. You
should be respectful enough of him and the rest of the list to reply
Imagine yourself standing at a party. Suddenly, some guy raises his voice
and yells "This man has just accused me of sleeping with his wife. Well, I
didn't!". What would you think of him?
