I don't believe attempting to wake you to the problem some of us have  
at times with your posts or the way I did it was all that rude.  I  
have also gone to bat for you more than once.

Whatever you mean by that I don't see where it is helpful.

I don't believe and never said you were stupid or meant anyone any  
harm.  But you were imo being too sloppy in your thinking and  
communication to actually get much out of being here.  I am happy for  
you to be here as long as you make some effort to think through what  
you are saying a bit more.

Wanting to learn per se and not intending to harm anyone is true of a  
lot of people who aren't particularly extropic.

Sigh.  Please grow up.  I don't think you are a lunatic.  If I did I  
would not have bothered to write what I did to you.  What you don't  
seem to get is that I would never write that to you if I did not  
believe you are fundamentally intelligent and honest enough to hear  
the truth in what was said and adjust your approach accordingly.
