I think he was commenting on the unnecessarily rude and condescending tone that Liam and one or two others on this list like to use; was it really necessary or appropriate to call Steven's apparently mistaken diagnosis *totally* wrong and "ludicrous" (while not even bothering to proofread his own post ;-)

We may not all decide to unsubscribe but I can tell you that for some of us this kind of stuff really detracts from enjoyment of a list and our motivation to actively participate.

But I must concede that it's been a lot worse in the past; fortunately some of the worst offenders have also left the list over the years...
