Ben notices that you're overly negative, and you attack him for noticing
it ... in a thread discussing politeness and all that.
This is pretty hilarious, but maybe this mailinglist is not the place
for wannabe standup comedians.

Being the insensitive person I am (as sping has pointed out quite
nicely) I'd say that you've shown repeatedly that you are not interested
in engaging in a proper discussion. So having some negative karma hit
you shouldn't be unexpected. Now please do as Ben said and leave us
amateurs with our stupid moronic stuff (as you've pointed out multiple
times) to do things wrongly while you have a chance to do them right
P.S. If you find any sarcasm, irony or similar you can keep it. Maybe
you can put it to good use at last.
