in consequence of the missive, I mostly think it was none of Darcy's business :-), penned by kathleen (elder)
I don't mean to say that his being Bingley's houseguest gave Darcy any right to intervene. (Wouldn't that add a layer of horror to houseguestdom as a whole?!) ;-) But it seems to me that the practice of spending weeks and weeks together might lend an illusion of familial closeness to non-familial relationships to which even a man as sensible as Mr. Darcy might succumb.
To put it in mathmatical terms, I see it as something like this:
(Proximity X Intimacy) + Pride [To The Fifth Power] = Darcy's Interference ;-)
