I'm just going to highlight this excerpt because it's
a real beaut:

I can't believe the condescension I'm reading here. 
I'm just in awe of how condescending and offensive it
is.  It's just so wrong-headed that I can't help but
think it's meant in humor.  Please, Bill, tell me that
you forgot to put in the smilies.

I didn't call anyone that.  I used it as a
counter-example of how I felt I was being harrassed. 
It's not ordinarily a word I'd use, and it was crude,
over the top, and unnecessary to making my point.  For
that I apologize.  I regretted the use of that word
after sending the mail and hoped everyone forgot to
put their glasses on while reading that particular

Komninos has written me a nice note and I owe him a
reply- Komninos, I'll reply soon.
