I didn't have a problem with that email. It's an opinion, and it's not
suggesting anything that would
be out of order nor is it making any insinuation that there's any foul play.
There are dictionary meanings of "zealously" that are not in contrast
with what I expect to be
the really-precise motivation for them big blue folks to wish to keep
EBCDIC around.
I didn't find the email an excellent poker play or an excellent chess
move, but I didn't find it
any reason for escalating a storm in a teacup either.
