PatO' announces that he won't apologize for suggesting Andreas be thrown off the
PatO', while I too have *occasionally* found Andreas tone annoying (he sounds at
times like a knowitall), I have not found him condescending, nor, except for
that exasperated example you gave, sarcastic. (You should remember he was being
flamed at the time.) Most people, if they've objected to one of his postings,
have either addressed his points or ribbed him nicely (I still snicker at "Pull
the other leg. It rings a bell.")
He has, however, done nothing *wrong*, and I am disturbed by your hostility.
Are you sure it isn't something personal?
