I don't agree Mark started this argument. That he gave a negative
appraisal of Nikos is not starting an argument in itself.

So? Should we particularly care about Nikos's feelings? Nikos is not
the victim, he is the instigator. And should his feelings get hurt
when it is pointed out what picture people got from him through his
own behaviour, I say good. May that way he'll learn that if he doesn't
want to be considered an incompetent inconsiderate jerk, he shouldn't
behave like one.
