I`m sorry Roger, But you are wrong again. I`m not angry at all, just
disappointed, (do you see how easy it is to slip up, and misinterpret text
and meanings). I`m not going to involve myself in personal explanations or
accusations because none of us know each other at all, and it would be quite
wrong to do so after a <communal> discussion. I feel that I don`t want to
get into a "one to one" involvement, as this is not the reason I signed up
originally for. Please try to not take my getting out as a personal slight
against you.

But I will say this. Your posts were not insulting. They were, (as other
contributors were,) mis-directed towards other issues. <I> was hasty in
using the term unintelligent to describe contributors also, and I will
withdraw this. It was caused when the debate moved away from the subject
onto a personal track, as a result of which I found I could no longer keep
to the subject myself, but had to continually fight, to correct mistaken
thoughts about my philosophies.

You are indeed an articulate and challenging debater, and I think klarinet
is very lucky to have you contributing so much - much more so, in my op.
than other considerably talented players.

We will talk again - - - - -

Best Wishes,
