Please, Jon, accept that we were not deliberately trying

(possibly worded in the form of an apology?), it would go a long way
to clearing this up.

Are you the same ChrisA who wrote in this very list just a month ago
towards a poster you disagreed with:

  "Yep. Good reasons like that you're a moron." [*]

If I said that, there's more to it than just that I disagreed with the person.

But how does that justify the comment? Sounds like a rationalization to
me. A little humility on all our parts goes a long ways.  One can
apologize for offense taken, even if none was intended, and even if my
own opinion is still strongly held.

But some people really do behave moronically on this list. I generally killfile them before the urge to insult gets too strong, but I do see Chris's point; leaving people with the idea that unacceptable behaviour is acceptable is a service to no one.
