[a way too nice reply]

Dear Armin, Samuele, all,

the person which wrote this ugly, overdone and unreflected
email was suffering from flu,woke up at 3:00 with fever
and nightmares, influenced by a lot of medical intoxination.
I will not allow this guy to touch the keyboard under such
circumstances, again and to abuse my name.

So here comes the best apology I've ever heared, for you:

 > You take it back...

< I do.  I offer a complete and utter retraction.
The imputation was totally without basis in fact,
and was in no way 'fair comment' and was motivated
purely by malice and I deeply regret any distress that
my comments may have caused you or your family...
...And I hereby undertake not to repeat any such
slander at any time in the future.

 > (hesitates). OK.

Borrowed from "A Fish called Wanda", the apology scene between
Otto and Archie, Archie dangling upside down out of the window
of the flat.  Otto is holding him by his ankles.

cheers - chris
