Yes, I wanted to air my opinion and I think my tone was sharp and 
concise as
my tone can be on a Sunday morning.

Of course I want this person to write with more knowledge and sympathy 
and I
think that my message may have affected her in two ways:

1.) She realises that there are people who disagree with her
2.) She notices her mistakes and learns from it

There are serveral ways of to skin a cat, I just choose this one and 
bear in mind that (a) I'm German and (b) I had a few glasses to drink.
