The emotional fragility was expressed perfectly by the childish rant 
that started all this.  None of the critical responses has given the 
impression that the author was horribly offended.  They have all pointed 
out that the original posting was nothing but emotional hysteria, devoid 
of any substance.  Your responses are displaying a complete lack of 
emotion maturity.

Yes, your dogma is to be commended.

Nobody is trying to do that.  All people are asking is that postings 
should have substance.  Yours have none.

Better in public.

Or. to put it another way "by hook or by crook I'll be last in this book".
