Nothing forbids that. The absence of these things does not make an
answer rude though, which is the point I am arguing. I did hope that I
made that clear in the rest of the message, but since you perceived that
as a rant I seem to have chosen the wrong words.

As I said: there are other messages that can be interpreted as very
abrupt or curt, no doubt about this. And I really think that it makes
sense to reconsider certain "standard" sentences, especially - as Sven
explained - there certainly is no hurt intended.

Since you were referring to me specifically as well, I'd like to ask you
to point out to me when/where I have chosen poor words or disrespect
towards the other human being. Feel free to discuss this on the list
although private mail probably is more appropriate.
