I am perhaps carrying this on too long but let me say one last thing.  You 
claim that your words were chosen with care.  I believe they were not. 
There are people that find that language very offensive (I don't happen to 
be one).  I believe these people deserve your consideration, even if the one 
who insulted you more or less deserved such a response.  I actually feel 
like apologizing for my somewhat scolding message.  I use such language 
myself but chose my places carefully.  Any way, enough about this.
