    Can you tell me what about the above could possibly be taken personally?

Is it not true that they talk like someone who knows what they are 
talking about?

Is it wrong to say they should check their examples before telling other 
people ho
to use them?

I called my self  gullible, which you might consider personal, but I 
think that's
between me and myself -- and I certainly couldn't make it work.

It didn't occur to me to think he was talking about array slices.

'STABBING PEOPLE'...WTF?  get a life Leon.  Yeah, you can take that as 
as you dealt it.

You're welcome, you!  *pblblblb*...(that means don't take the above as 
very personal (heck, I don't
even know you...but stop thinking the world is made of eggshells!!))
