My paranoia:

Well, that s exactly the style (_and_ _for_ _my_ _touchy_ _taste_ _you_
_also_ _insulted_ _Phil_ _Wight_) of writing which I regard as an insult.
Maybe I am touchy but this is a style of manners I m not used to at all
and which I can hardly accept. Your choice of vocabulary in your reply to
Phil s comment speaks for itself but not for you.
Just for your information:
Paranoia is currently dealt with as a special case of schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is known as a serious inheritable disease.....
Well, maybe I m too touchy....


Hello all,

Sorry to all of you who were bothered by this stupid flamewar which I seem
to have started by making a plant offer on this list and which I feel at
least being partly responsible for. May I get tortured if ever putting a
plant offer into this list again. I tried to explain my points of view and
noticed too late that it was not water but oil which I was pouring into a
fire. For my case I m not willing to continue the whole "discussion"
neither on this list, nor by private mails as it seems to be fruitless.
I m glad that I was not the only person who regarded some statements which
were made as insults and that I was not at all alone with my views. This
gives me hope of not being paranoid;-)
I m especially glad that at least a few little productive side discussions
arose from the big rest of useless waste of internet resources.

My last words in this matter:

All the best
