I believe (I _could_ be having a senior moment of memory failure) that the
post you've cited was from Mark Charette (check the "From:" line in the
message header). If you haven't lurked here long enough to know, Mark is the
list administrator (is this title close enough, Mark) for Klarinet and for
the related website. He has over the years I've been here demonstrated one
of the greatest maturity levels here. I think you've badly and
inappropriately reacted to what he said. I can't let that go by without
responding - not that Mark is incapable of very ably defending his own

Please take two or three breaths before you respond to this or any other
reactions your last post may draw.

Thank you. :-)
