I can turn you right off by my "style" of communicating even if the
substance might be of high value. It is this responsibility of the
receiver to see beyond style that the previous posts are getting at. While
adapting my style to the audience is also my responsibility, if we do not
share it we are doomed to repeat the sins of the past. FWIW ... Keith
