The three requests were sub-threads of one main thread. It seemed as though all three threads were rehearsing the same argument at different times and that, eventually, each of the sub-threads threatened to become rancorous and occasionally personal. It's unfortunate that all of these requests were posted in response to one of your messages as you were not the only participant headed in that direction. But, as you are the most active participant in all these threads, perhaps it was inevitable.
I didn't want to shut down the whole thread, but perhaps I should have. Allow me to take this opportunity to remind everyone that the discussion of the book should focus on the book and that an argument that demeans someone else's understanding is not appropriate for Pemberley and will be similarly ended.
