And you are doing it very well, Richard. It's never too late to be open
to ourselves why you often express yourself the way you do here.

And doing it in a global manner, too.

Do you know that if this is a real-life classroom, you often sound
like a rude bully?

I get the feeling that you need to remind yourself that you are in
charge, but I'm sure this can be done in a more friendly manner
than hurting some of those whom you have never even met face
to face.

Why so much anger?

This is a great place for learning and exchange, crossing cultures,
shall we keep it so, in a more friendly manner?
