I have no idea why people take my words as words of hate?

Well, when I see your name above a comment I immediately associate it with long, rant-ish and repetitive posts, where you often concentrate on one person's failings. I realise that's a generalisation, but it *is* the first thing that comes up. And to be frank, most names here come up completely blank for me.

Let's take a step back, and look at the comments from your profile. Most of them are for Syllable-related articles, and fairly negative. Also the negativeness revolves around marginalising new developments of Syllable (even if they are small), belittling Kaj's abilities, or even cornering Vanders here on the forum and demand explanations.

That really sounds to me like someone who still has a bone to pick.

Yes, it's already a long time ago,so there is not even a little part of hate in me. I could even go with kaj to the pub to drink a cup of .... calm water :-).

To be honest, you haven't convinced me. But I hope I am wrong. And anyway, my personal opinion in that doesn't matter much anyway.

Why don't you try to take my words as "pure information"?

Reading back those previous comments of yours in Syllable-related threads, I sense a lot of bitterness and resentment in them. I'm not saying there are no true facts or valid opinions at all in your comments, but your comments are certainly heavily coloured by your negative experience with the community. So I don't feel I can take your comments on this subject as "pure information".

It can happen that I make sometimes errors when I'm tired (and I also admit them), but in "as good as all" cases i say stuff that is really true.

That's only human, but then my suggestion is to reconsider the possibility that Syllable still makes you more on edge than you'd like, and to reflect a little longer on your Syllable-related posts. I regularly leave forum posts alone for an hour after writing them, only submitting (or scrapping!) them after another re-read.

There are plenty of reasons why it can be difficult to interpret the nuances and true intentions of posts on the Internet, that also goes for yours *and* mine. I hope I haven't offended you with this one; my main motive here was to give you some insight into why *I* "take [your] words as words of hate".
