I would hope this wouldn't need saying, but my comment was meant as a
compliment to Laurel, and not as a slur on anyone else.

It is one of the best features of an electronic discussion list such
as this one that it can connect people of very disparate backgrounds
and temperaments.  One person's tact may be another person's insult.
One person's search for truth may be another person's effrontery.  One
person's plain speech may be another person's insultingly big words.
Etc.  Yet we can still communicate if we choose to do so.

No doubt we all can learn from one another.
