You were not confused. It might the language and the fact that I usually
think in my main language and then type in another thing. 

You also don't know me, but I'm usually a bit vertical and accutilant on
my speech, which doesn't help.

No need for apologies. All the input if processed accordingly and it
always points things we can improve.

As I said to Mel the other day on the IRC, our real friends are those
who point our flaws and usually say the things that are true and we most
times are not kin to ear; not those who always agree with you and backup
you up blindly. It's a good point Paul, something to look for and try to
improve. I'll commit to that.

My apologies to anyone on the list if I've sounded too harsh. I have
nothing against the media, neither the publication in case (just find it
misleading most of the times, but that's a personal opinion).
