My second message was rude, but it was because of the flack I caught for the
first. I wanted to make a point, posting with a future date is wrong. As for
your previous message, I was referring to your bad grammar and your
typographical errors. If you are going to call someone a moron, it is
imperative that you don't make yourself look like one.
Joke or not, your first message wasn't what I was referring to. Not that you
would realize it, but that was a helpful message. The clock error may just
have been the problem. And it needed fixing anyway.
But, your second message *was* rude. "Jerk?" "Moron?" Assuming that the
clock error was deliberate? These are nothing if not rude comments.
Other than not taking the time to check my message for grammatical errors
and typos, can you tell me what other errors are extant in my message? I
stand by the contents, 100%.
