I was actually referring to his spelling of the MPAA.  Calling large groups
childish names isn't going to help you prove your point.  The top part of
what I quoted was my attempt to show that Keith wanted to keep the thread on
topic and civil.  Below the following <snip> he lost a bit of the civility
and professionalism I thought he was going for.

You have my apologies if my writing wasn't clear enough.

And incidentally, I didn't change the thread in plug-talk, but did ask for
clarification twice on points that were brought up after the thread had lost
its original meaning.
