Now that we've both apologized to the list -- and, by extension, to one
another -- let me add that I, for one, am willing to forget that anyone said
anything at all.

I don't really see how such a personal message would help. If you're writing to
a jerk about his being a jerk, he'll only be a jerk again when he responds --
and you've just given him your e-mail address. I compounded this by being a bit
of a jerk myself, but I invoke a reverse "Twinkie Defense" in that my blood
sugar made me cranky.
