I understand; I was just being clear that I had not been nasty...  
which one could derive from your response, not that you mean that I was.

Ic... so you respond to my caustic or opinionated view with your  
caustic or opinionated view... don't see how that helps.

How would you respond to someone who is berating you over and over  
with the same statements and not actively trying to resolve the issue  
as suggested by working a patch out?  Seems like my constructive  
requests for patches or more specifics are going unanswered... so  
"whatever..." I give up on trying.

My tune has only recently been starting to change because of the  
failed efforts of my previous tune which was to try and be patient  
and constructive and direct... granted I might not have been the most  
effective at it, but I am and will keep trying to do that... up to a  
point.  You chimed commenting about several emails after I had  
reached that threshold.

I am not convinced that there is one set, desired and effective way  
to communicate here.

I do (and did) understand that was the point of your email... and my  
response was only to clarify to instigate, but based on your response  
I see that you might have misinterpreted what I said.

This is in fact the krux of our problems with emails... it is  
entirely to easy to misinterpret, misunderstand or misjudge based  
solely on textual representations.

But, I don't feel that it is wise to simply drop in a note for the  
last word, or to leave a comment that could be misinterpreted go  
unchallenged, as those situations tend to bread common (mis) 
conceptions of a situation which is not necessarily the accurate  

I believe we all need to work more on own communication skills...  
including myself.
