If you honestly believe that I rant worse than plenty of others here, then you are applying a pretty interesting filter to your mail and/or misreading emotional content of my messages. That’s quite understandable, since text does such a poor job of conveying what would be tone of voice or facial expression.

Basically, people decide who they trust and who they like and push messages into piles that fit what they expected before they even opened the message.


I’ll make a conscious effort to be less annoying. Good luck getting anyone else here to do that.
