I don't think it's a question of balance. I could elaborate a little
bit, but IMO it's beside the point anyway.

What I want to say is : if he says there was no rudeness involved, you
don't lose much (if anything) by trusting him. As hard as can be, you
should assume good faith for some time before deciding that someone is
actually insulting you.

Maybe you still think that it *felt* rude, but then you should feel
relieved, now that you know it wasn't meant to be rude.

Ok, now I have a problem : this thread looks broken on my Gnus. What can
be done to avoid this state ? e.g. when on the message I'm now
responding to, I can't get to its parent using "A r" in gnus. It seems
also broken on the web archive at


[*] Obviously it should apply to many people, including myself. Well, I
find it incredibly hard to follow this. Even with close relatives. This
is off topic though.
