My answer was not intended to be impolite, I hope Detlef doesn't take
it that way.   If so I apologize in advance to him.

I probably was a little iritated at the question, simply because
we tried so hard on Thorstens behalf, and yet in the end it is
suggested that Thorsten is the victim.  The string of offended
members doesn't count and are not important but only Thorsten is.

Obviously you were not the subject of his attacks.  It's pretty easy
for you to say this isn't it?   I don't think some of his targets
can brush this off as lightly as you do.
