I can attribute it to a change in environment.  Going "back" to robot
mode would imply one wasn't always in it, and as such I interpreted a
tacit compliment.  Thank you for the compliment, Bruno.  I don't
suppose "starting a thread" is much of a threat, after all... at least
in isolation.

Regardless, as I've stated, I find the feedback valuable that there
seems (to people) to be more than one context that I'm writing from,
and I appreciate the chance to learn about it.  It's an observation an
erst friend made once that one can never perceive oneself directly.
(Whether that's a virtue depends on what difference there is between
self-conscious, and self-aware.)
