Now let me do it in public.

When you read words like "barking" or "rubbish" in a mailing list of an 
international project, you are *expected* to assume some communication 
barrier (both reader and writer can be imperfect in communicating their 
thoughts - both native and non-native speakers; no one is required to 
have Lord Byron's skills to write). If you do *not* assume that, you are 
misbehaving when accusing others in being impolite (until you have 
proofs that the other person *intended* to be offensive).

But when you write "you are just trying to prove your point by saying 
anything which does not make sense", you are directly accuse the other 
person in being unethical; there is no way to read it other than saying 
that you accuse the other person in telling lies and nonsense just to 
look "winner" in the argument - and that *is* rude.

So please just stop trying to play a moderator here, and try to be both 
permissive to others' words, *and* respectful yourself (which you were 
not too successful in so far).

Best regards,
Mike Kaganski
