  sorry, but if you found that _condescending_, I had no part in it.

  yes, you do.  this started when you dramatically overreacted and
  didn't "get" a light-hearted and slightly sarcastic response.  I
  hope you are willing to judge your own reaction, as well, because
  the need and willingness to judge people is part of the problem.

  in real life, I would have responsed "geez, dude, lighten _up_".

  has it occurred to you (or anyone else) that _I_ don't appreciate
  you judge-happy uptight freaks?  why do _you_ have the right to bug
  and annoy me with your unnatural uptightness under cover of being
  polite and respectful?  answer: you don't.

  if you are so polite and respectful, now is the time to prove it.
