This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
As one of the two transcribers who (quote) " jumped in to criticise Sue
Smith", may I point out that I did not do this, merely asked how Dave's
reply was construed to be impolite? I then went to great pains to explain
how the written word could be misinterpreted by people (any people) putting
their own inflections on words and reading into a message something that was
not intended. It appears that that is what has happened by the person who
I should also point out that this is a multicultural project and what is
construed as polite, but plain, speaking in one country may be considered
impolite in another, even when those two countries are using varieties of
the 'same' language. That is why I asked people to step back and give the
benefit of the doubt.
It is also possible for the opposite to occur, and what is considered polite
speak in one culture to appear to be sycophantic twaddle in another.
As Arnie pointed out this should be on the discuss list, so I have copied
this to that list as well.

I want Sue Smith, wherever she is, to know that I agree with her opinion of
our leader Mayall's response to her email a couple days ago. In spite of the
fact that two transcribers immediately jumped in to criticize her, Mayall's
reply was indeed written in his usual irritating manner.
Yes, I know, this type of email belongs on the discussion list, not this
