OK, Tony seems to push the buttons of a few people on here who don't get his
particular brand of humour/irony and are also not willing to consider his
circumstances and cut him any slack, but IMO this particular personal attack
is almost completely unjustified. I'm actually quite surprised since it
seems out of character for my left-coast fellow Canuck, for whom I've always
had a great deal of respect until this childish rant/personal attack; I hope
Some of us have personalities which are special in one way or another,
which is to be expected in a hobby like this one. I think it is
important to allow other people the benefit of the doubt. If someone
says something that one at first takes personally, one can always ask
politely what they meant, as it is quite likely that one has
misunderstood what the other person meant.
Tony in particular, apart from his British humour, I believe is very
uncompromising about doing what he thinks is right, for which I think he
deserves respect, and even if one disagrees with his idea of what is
right, one has to accept that that is the way he is, just as we expect
to be accepted the way we are.
