Why the hostile response, Bryan?

I didn't see anything provoking in Edward's remarks that would

This list is supposed to be FLAME-FREE.

Nobody is putting down the brain on this list, so delete a thread that
bores you and move on.  Or at least *respond from the brain,*  instead
of from the spleen, when you address it.
