    Some people just don't get sarcasm... ;-( For someone who has
    a such a sentence as yours at the end of their mails, you do
    generate quite a lot of unsolicited comments, misreading the
    contents of the messages you reply to. (Yes, that does annoy

    Please don't go off on a limb on something that the message
    you replied to did not talk about. Please read the message first,
    and understand what it's about. Then read it again, and make
    sure you have not misread. And keep any replies at a suitable
    length. And no, I will not let you mislead readers of this list by
    not commenting on what you write. I'm not the only one
    chastising you. You may have noticed e.g. Ken do the same,
    in no subtle ways.

    You are of course welcome to participate in the discussions
    on this list. But please,

     . be careful about terminology, and about what is what,
     . don't misread, and misreply, to messages from others,
     . keep your posting at a reasonable length, concentrated
       on the issue at hand,
     . don't mislead readers by erroneous statements formulated
       as unquestionable truths,
     . (I'm sure to have missed something...).

    That way you can contribute positively to the discussion,
    while not constantly annoying or misleading people.

    Don't worry Philippe, I of course never intended to report
    you anywhere. Just trying to get you to behave a bit more
