Hmm. One more indication of the problems of pure text modes of communication.
I would have sworn that it would have been obvious when I was
indignant. When I am, I usually express myself in strong terms of an
expletive nature. My posting about Sunir Shah was purely motivated by
curiosity, and thus entirely free of expletives, or even pointed
sarcasm. Very emotively neutral curiosity. If you you thought using
words like "glaring" and "mile wide" expressed indignation, I assure
they were not intended to do so, but to be purely expressive of the
objective case of affairs.
