My response (and I'm happy to end this here):

1. (a) You make an assertion that I don't like the man. This is untrue,
and I think if you read my post you'd understand my surprise at you taking
it this way.
(b) I spelled his name incorrectly and acknowledged the likelihood of this
in my first post. The fact that I've seen him on television a few times by
no means would indicate that I'm an expert.

2. (a) You assert once again that this has nothing to do with b-greek. It
may be nothing to do with Biblical Greek, and I grant you that, but my post
was intended to specifically reflect on the way people on this mailing list
communicate with one another.
(b) You say I am propagating prejudices. Against who? The Irish? I
certainly didn't pick that up in Stephen's accent.
