Hi Mike,

***Unless you just don't see my points or have the time, I bet you're a great one to ask!***

I see your points. Thank you for your vote of confidence.

***Shall I assume my content-related questions were too unimportant or off-topic to address?***

No. Don't assume that.

***That it suited your mood more to be drawn off into another argument with Luis Hamburgh, anonymous Dick-basher of longstanding?***

"Suiting [my] mood" is a good way to characterize the reason I responded to Luis instead of you. Let me explain why I respond when I do. The time I have available to respond is variable and intermittent. That explains the clumps and gaps in my response pattern. When I do have time to respond, I am inclined to respond to someone with whom I disagree, either to get clarification from them, or to offer a new point of view to them. I am disinclined to respond to people who share my views. I think that wastes everyone's time. The highest priority, though, is to respond to anyone who asks me a question or addresses me directly.

In your case, you may have noticed that any time you ask me anything, I usually respond at my earliest opportunity. If, on the other hand, you have posted something in a conversation with someone else and I happen to agree with you, I usually don't respond at all. There have been exceptions, though, when you wrote something so good that I thought it deserved some complimentary remarks even though I agreed with you and you were talking to someone else.

So, to net it out, if you want me to comment, all you have to do is ask me.

I have just been called to dinner and I don't know how to save this so I can continue it later. I'll just post it now and continue in another post when I am not so hungry.

Warm regards,
