I notice how you had to stick your 2 cents in and also how your letter is
totally out of character with the rest of the letters.


IOW you're the only one whose letter is overly hostile, negative, paranoid and way over the top.

Oh, please, don't be so pathetic. That described *you*.

Actually, I have to concur that the tone of Roy's letter is different from all the others. I didn't actually bother to read the names signed at the bottom any of the other letters, but when I read that one, I wondered who wrote it, and I saw Roy's name. I didn't read the original article though, so maybe Roy has a point when he accuses the author of spreading FUD. I don't know.

The E-mail I sent him was longer. He only quoted the very heart of the
argument while neglecting to mention compliments and praises. This seems
like the rational thing to do, in order for the article to contain just the
'meat'. Since flatfish hates me, he choose to interpret the tone of the text
as accusive, rather than a friendly tone (I always have this low tone in
real life). These ambiguities are among the dangers of E-mail
correspondence. This led me to several serious entanglement in the past and
a face-to-face encounter can often rectify that.

Thanks for the clarification. It hadn't occured to me that the letters might have been edited like that, though I suppose as you said, it's probably the norm for most publications.
