That sentence was just a guess because:

- at the time I wrote this, I knew I couldn't investigate things
further, even obvious ones

- I knew you were following the thread.

So, it was not asking for your diagnostic, but just presuming you
would end up with the right conclusion.

Your interpretation was "I ask Frans to complete the diagnosis". So,
what I need to accept is that your interpretation of my words was
different from the initial intent. I'll be more careful in the future.

Something you clearly fail to see are the consequence of things you can
say (or write) *from the perspective of the person* you're talking
to. I have sufferred from the same for years before my paid work
bringed me in a position where it's part of my job to manage such
interactions and understand the consequence of words.

As you see above, I still fail from time to time..:-)

Hopefully, this is the conclusion of this thread.
