Re: SG-W:/ apologies
You don't have to apologize to me, John. As I noted in my response, I don't
think I was attacking BL (Barry Lonik?), but rather statements he was
making. Likewise, I took your email as a challenge to the way I was saying
things. That's fair.
My wife says that I'm too literal at times. That is, I use words intending
their dictionary meaning, but that many people have other connotations for.
I expect to have to clarify things occasionally, since people attach
significance to the words that I didn't intend when I wrote them. That's
certainly happened before.
I'm more used the *real* flame wars that go on in the bike, pedestrian,
urban-transit, and other newsgroups. In those cases, you learn to be very
precise and literal. Smart-Growth Washtenaw is quite civil and sometimes
casual in comparison.
