It normally is not offered as "belittlement and Patronisation" nor taken
as such. It is normally offered as generous education and introduction
to "norms" of list behaviour and accepted as such. Those with thin skins
seem to not understand this. Nor do they understand that many factors
make "abbreviated" posts, which can be easily taken as "harsh", a
desirable thing. As with any human thing, extremes cme into play and
perceptions, background, whats "expected" all influence the results.

It takes extra effort to add those few little words and phrases that may
"soften" the perception. Not all are willing, or even aware of, these

Just make your skin thicker and keep on truckin'.
