I am not accusing you of anything. I am making an observation about the imperfect nature of communication through text. It was and is not directed at you.

I did state that you interpreted what I wrote differently than I interpreted it; but that is consistent with the literary definitions I quoted and is not an accusation of any sort. If anything, I am bemused by the difficulty of saying anything clearly, despite my claim to be proficient at doing so.

Best regards,
