My comments are somewhat inspired by one of Fred's regular tendencies to
comment on word usage in my posts and then contradict what I say. I didn't
see any change in this tendency with his comment about the square being "on"
the hypotenuse and his discussion about geometry not being a part of math,
which is a contradiction to my example of math and music. It's a regular
habit of his when he responds to one of my posts. I don't see why he feels
the need to "correct" and then contradict me. I also didn't see why Fred
took the discussion into an unrelated area that is not related to the
subject or to anything related to technical writing.

Maybe it's Fred's tendency to correct and contradict everybody, but I find
the habit highly annoying.

Whoa Lauren...

Personally, I think you are overreacting a bit to Fred's post. And
the same criticisms you made of Fred might also be applied to your post.

I personally found Fred's post to be insightful and complementary.
Apparently you did not. But can't we all still be friends?
