15 No. According to Canek, I'm not.

20 Heck! Even according to yourself, in the same email, I'm not understanding it wrong!
23 I've asked you this before - would you stop wrongly telling people they're wrong, please?
25 Would you please just stop and think "could it be me who is misunderstanding this?"
27 Could you please just rephrase yourself "I think you may be mistaken".
29 Whenever it is *you* who is mistaken, you are always assertively and authoritatively so.
31 This makes it harder for people to question or challenge you, and it ensures those you misadvise will waste their time with greater determination. "Well, Alan knows what he's on about, and he said this definitely - there was no doubt in his statement".
33 Not only that, it's just plain annoying to be told one is wrong when one is not.
