  That he cannot distinguish between his professional role and his personal
  opinions, is.  That he cannot "completely agree" with a desire not to
  post without posting, certainly indicates a several lack of politeness.

  Sure, he prefers politeness, but mostly by requiring others to behave.

  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
