Can you be more specific about this ongoing negativity?
As an exercise, why don't you go back and reread what you have written as if someone else wrote it. I suspect you would come to the same conclusion as mindyourmind.

I felt that I did respond, and very respectfully.
You responded, but you were not responsive. Again, you just tried to justify your actions without really addressing what was said to you.
I'd suggest, Tilt, that if you are serious about having a dialogue, we continue this by PM, as you suggested to me. Most people probably aren't interested in our quibbles. Thank you.
Do you always put so much energy into quibbles?
