Well, we all make mistakes, but Herb Schulz's batting average is  
*way* above the norm.

I don't have your original message to check, but if Herb  
misunderstood you, you ought to at least consider that it was not as  
complete and clear as you wanted it to be. Herb is one of the most  
consistently helpful and patient people on this list; considering he  
took the time to answer your query at all, albeit not to your liking,  
do you really think calling his response "facile and patronizing" is  
an appropriate reaction?

Not that it's my place to defend Herb's honor or anything, but the  
tone of your email rubbed me the wrong way, and seemed out of place  
on this usually extraordinarily civil mailing list.
