I wouldn't have thought this needed any discussion, but after a few emails and a lecture from my father, I'll open it up. In this
thread I left some info for others, and upon receiving a "I don't think it's accurate" message, corrected them rather snidely
. (The lead-in comments are the two immediately prior.)
The question is:
Given the offense (not checking facts before posting), did I come down too tough? Is this an effective way to get people to start thinking before posting, or is this just going to be seen as obnoxious and arrogant?
