Clearly you seem to be on a mission of some sort. I'll let that be your
I just joined this discussion list a couple days ago, and my original
submission yesterday morning was in response to an email that seemed to have
been an original thread. That message simply asked how one might print in
the twelve hour format. In trying to learn this language that is new for
me, I was contributing in a way that I thought was respectful to the users
of the list service. I was unaware that there had apparently been a
pre-existing thread that had begun with your challenge.
As such, I personally found your submission today to be offensive. Perhaps
I am being overly sensitive. Perhaps I am just plain mistaken. But clearly
I will be far more reticent to contribute my two coppers. There is a chance
that other newcomers may feel similarly, which would be a shame for both the
list, as well as, the language.
As for a grade, Mr. Racko, you are welcome to give me a plain "F" with no
curve for being both an innocent contributing newcomer and not being
omniscent. I believe that my contribution was appropriate to the question
being asked in this thread. While your mission may be worthwhile, I
question your methods. Now please excuse me while I bow out into the very
deep background of this discussion list.
