I think you're way off on this - but I'm prepared to be proved wrong. If you look at *all* my posts to this group, I wonder what percentage of them could be counted as "jumping down somebody's throat". I would wager that it would be significantly less than 1%. I am fully aware that I can come across a little harsh when responding to something I deem to be really stupid - but that's just what I'm like, and that's just what killfiles are for - if it bothers someone, it's very easy for them to remove me from their existence. You seem to completely ignore the fact that people are different, react differently to different things, are irritated by different things, and interpret reactions quite differently from one another. -- Grunff
