As someone who met David many times in person at various conferences,
I can assure you that it's definitely not David's intention to insult
you or anybody else in any way.

I know many people who acknowledge David's helpfulness very much.
But it's also well known that David immediately gets pissed-off if
he's blamed for things he isn't responsible for.  Admittedly, his
mail messages often sound quite harsh.  Don't worry.

It's a pity that you didn't have the opportunity to meet David in
person.  The internet is a great thing because it allows you to
communicate with everybody in the world.  But it's also the cause of
many problems which are avoidable if poeple simply meet physically as
we did when I was young.

I know David very well and can assure you that the least thing he had
in mind is to insult you.  Don't worry if his mails sound quite harsh.

I'm looking forward to meet you both at BachoTeX-2018.
