I really wasn't directing it at you specifically... more at the overall messages that seem to come out towards everyone...
I read my mail after a day off and 95% of the messages were people down talking other people...
As I said before it wasn't really directed at you... just a general statement..

Hey, whatever's appropriate. Unfortunately, I'm probably justifying
this moron's messages by replying to them, but some things just need to
be said. I can't speak out against the morons I talk to at work, but I
can protest about the ones trying to hinder a large-scale project.
