Thanks for your words of comfort Dan :-) It seems to me that my "gentle
touch" seems to annoy some posters. But OTOH maybe I managed to draw a bit
of attention to the subject of grumpiness again.

What I noticed is that Paul Lutus seems to be an efficient catalyst for
grumpiness. He's real good at provoking others to direct it towards him. A
lot of threads are mainly centered around his person and his personal
style instead of talking about the C language.

If this takes the heat off the rest of us, I'm all for it! :-)

I don't know about "a lot of threads" though - as a percentage, it's
vanishingly small - no more than 18 or 20% max.

It's pretty obvious to me that Paul Lutus is trying for this effect;
I can see no other explanation for some of his posts.

Unlike Patrick McGoohan, I at least know who number 1 is.
