As I recall, Tibor's post started out with something along the lines of '
Your Highness, you are simply wrong.'
Now, for Tibor, this is rather mild ;)
However, one does see where people might take offence. I've often wished
Tibor would be a bit less blunt, or at least round his corners slightly when
posting, but that is a matter of personal preference. (Even if most persons
would prefer it! <wicked grin>)
I think that statements of mis-fact on a public forum OUGHT to be corrected
in public. But they ought to be corrected NICELY in public. Regardless of
who the poster is.
If this degenerates into a discussion of what 'nice' is, I will be disappointed.
