I'm sorry this wasn't clear enough. I thought it was. By "some or any" I
meant "not all". You are right, I don't perceive you as someone who has
told me what to think, but I do perceive you as someone who may not listen.

I overreacted to what I read, but I didn't make any mistakes in what I
read. I hope it is not necessary for me to cut and paste. I think if you
read the messages between Mr. Finney, Mr. Bliss, and myself, it is
abundantly clear I was being told what to think.
