It is ironic that the most caustic, vitriolic person on this list made
these comments.  Further ironic that she misses the subtle points of
other list members, reduces them to something far less interesting that
she can attack, then spews her venom.  Her posts on Tuesday and
Wednesday were a terror.  Let she who is without sin collect rocks and
learn to accept Abdulla al-Dabbagh apology with the grace it deserves.

Dear Abdulla,

Thank you so much for your kind email--you certainly seem to know more
about the intricacies of criticism on Othello than I do!

I was unaware that my view was that unusual.
