| How appropriate for a public forum. How impersonal. How ... professional.

  How emotional.

| What you consistently fail to understand is that /even when they deserve it/
| such behaviour is not appropriate.

  And you have gained access to my brain how?  If you think personal comments
  are so wrong and apparently attack me for not living up to what I have said,
  why do /you/ do it?  Perhaps you /do/ understand that even when something is
  not "appropriate", it can still have its place and function?

  Please be less concerned with me and more concerned with yourself, especially
  in public.  Also note that I /respond/ to your personal attacks.  Even though
  what you do is clearly inappropriate by all standards, even someone like you
  should be able to understand that letting attacks stand is not in anyone's
  interest.  If you are so interested in better behavior, start with yourself.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
