Your posts do have a tendency to come off as being sly and a bit mean, despite 
your claim to have transcended karma, I mean Judeo-Christian notions of 

You will recall that Mayka's posts also rub some people the wrong way, a 
phenomenon that has been thoroughly dissected here and attributed to some 
interesting linguistic goings on and the off bit of whoop ass. 

Perhaps you will share what you see as the causes for people to mis-read your 
intent in your posts.  Perhaps you won't trust this forum that much. 

If you say that the causes are all external to you, I have to comment that 
there is not a dividing line between ED and Mayka. 

For the record, I found your use of the word "restrained" to described Bill's 
right speech to make me think you were being sly, and your reply to Mayka to 
definitely communicate negative emotional content.

when not upset

Is it mama patting Billy on the head for being a good boy? 
Or is it a product of the fecal finger-pointing Judeo-Christian tradition?
Or is it the historical Spanish inquisitorial spirit rearing its ugly head?
Or is it something else?
