    Um, no more unfriendly than the critical comment you made about the
    designs of the five finalists that I also quoted, where you said

    "I don't know if this is a joke or not, but none of those five is any good."

    I was just pointing out that you did not care for the five finalists'
    work, but one of them is walking home with the Rupees for the design that
    wasn't very good.

    Your words were techncially more insulting than mine, I was just observing
    fianancial truths without judgment.
