I think this brief comment calls for an equally brief response noting
that Edward has told us more about himself than he has told us about
the text.

I hope this short exchange does not erupt into flames; I have no
intention that it should. If it does, it will do so without my
further participation, and it will be well to bear in mind who struck
the match with what I can only take as a deliberately provocative
comment. Certainly the nature of the discussion itself did not
require this expression of personal opinion that contributes nothing
to our understanding of the textual question at issue. Is it not
reasonable to ask the chairman of the list to abide by the same
limitations that the staff with good reason wishes the rest of us to
