It didn't seem that clear to me when I first read it, but I'm usually
pretty crabby at 8am, and not very awake. Now that I've re-read the
message five times, I understand how you read it (and agree that is
probably what the author meant), but at the same time, any message that
has to be read that many times to be understood wasn't very well
written. Now I'm just lashing out 'cuz I feel somewhat stupid about
being an ass, but better clarity in the original message would have
been nice. ;-p
