The reason was simple, I didn't think to send it privately.  Fortunately my
opinion of myself is too high for me to consider my oversight an indication
of idiocy or hypocricy.  Your response does not make it seem you were
amused,  and I think my post made it clear I did not intend to offend.
Yours seems clearly designed to do just that, so I ask,  what did I say
that deserved this response?

Oh, yes,  I felt it was appropriate to make this post public,  Mr. Magann.
Thank _You_ for your time.

PS: Sorry, Richard,  but I could not let that pass.
