   Well, actually in this case I think Corun was right, even though
I was the one being criticized.  I *did* post in public, and insult
(however unintentionally -- You're right, Corun, that it was a hasty
and poorly thought-out post from work! :) several people who didn't 
deserve it.  I speculate that Corun wanted to show public support for 
the people I'd insulted, as well as correct me, and I don't have a
problem with that.

   But thanks for the support!  :)
