This article and the comments it has elicited raise some important questions about how we adapt to the new media of communication of which Drobe Launchpad is an example. If I were Axel I would feel hurt and angry at the reply I received. Is the author lacking in imagination, or did he intend to hurt? I too have sometimes given offense, perhaps because I was trying harder to be right than to be kind. May I suggest that the problem of how to use our new technology politely is not only an ethical problem but also an intellectual one, and just as worthy of our brains' employment as how to write a JIT compiler. I hope that this comment gives no offense, so let me end by saying that if he is a man the author of the article will have the courage to sweeten the air by apologizing to Axel and promising to think a bit harder about the effect of his communications before he sends them.
