I'm sure you could have a ton of field days, describing for hours all
kinds of irrelevant crap. Maybe you can read a book about adapting to
different standards within different social groups instead of
lecturing to people who don't care. It's a mailing list. Calling
people stupid is not 'disproportionate aggression,' it's just calling
stupid people stupid. Sorry if your life has caused you to consider
honesty 'aggressive.'
