I could refer you to a thread where a student was verbally ripped to pieces for daring to ask people to respond to a questionnaire and not saying enough pleases and thank yous, so my concern was to protect this young man - who struck me as possibly not having English as a first language - from such unpleasantness.
As for looking forward, you have no idea what I may or may not have done since I retired and you might be surprised. I don't mind marshmello having a laugh at my expense but I do mind rudeness, though I'm not going to respond in kind. Thank you MMP for your kind defence of me. This kiind of squabble is frankly stupid as well as rude. I think I'll bow out.
