We must not forget that the asynchronous written communication we're 
using here is known to express only a small part of one's actual 
feelings (some say 5% only).
AND for many of us english is a second or third language, which doesn't 
AND sometimes we're trying to be funny, which is even more risky due to 
cultural differences (But hey, at times we succeed so it's worth it 
IMHO ;-) )

So I think we must all switch all kinds of mental filters on when 
reading what's happening here.

My 2 cents.
