As I said to Clemens Suter-Crazzolara in a private message, such rude
messages as this are not in keeping with the spirit of cooperation that
the readers of bionet.software have worked hard to create and maintain.
It is particularly inappropriate to send MULTIPLE hostile messages 
complaining about someone else's supposed "rudeness."  Personal
comments, either positive or negative, are best sent directly to the
person who sent the original message.

There is a "netiquete" guide somewhere out there in newsnet, which 
advocates getting up from your computer, for a few minutes of a few
hours, to give your temper a chance to cool down before you fire off
any nasty notes that you might come to regret later.
