There was certainly a communications breakdown, yes.  And we did 
start off by going down a rathole as a result of an accident, 
although we did wind up taking this thread back onto your topic which 
was intended to be original.

However, while you may have felt like you were being provoked, you 
should know that I certainly did not intend to provoke you, and I 
don't believe that anyone else did, either.  I believe it was an 
honest miscommunication, which was piled on top of some unfortunate 
previous problems, and that set us up into a pattern which became 
mutually non-productive.

I will apologize for anything I may have said which came across as 
being provocational in nature, and assume that you (and others) would 
do the same.

There may still be some minor technical issues that can/should 
continue to be discussed, and if so then I hope we will be able to do 
that without getting back into this pattern.
