Nor was it mine. However, even serious discussions can have some levity, especially amongst like minded people and those with a background in various parts of said discussion.

To take offense at such levity shows the comments were misconstrued, so let me reiterate there was no malice or condescension in mine or anyone else's comments (that I read) towards Herb or his points, only pointing out the sometimes ridiculous assertions made about "first" this or "invented" that, which was part of the original topic of the thread.
