That was totally uncalled for. We should all try to think our replies 
over before sending them. Do I overreact? Does my reply move the topic 
forward? If you want to, put 1 EUR in a cookie jar every time you 
refrain from sending a possibly inflamatory mail. If you're hot 
tempered, that's a nice dinner every week... :)
