i'm guessing that you did not _intend_
for that to sound quite that insensitive,
so i'll choose not to interpret it that way.

you probably were trying, in your own way,
as clumsy as it may be, just to encourage me
to "get back on-topic", which i would assume
means to post about markdown, even though
the so-called "inventor" of markdown, gruber,
would be the first to tell you that if it wasn't for
steve jobs, he'd likely be in another line of work.

so i'd think your definition of "on-topic" is narrow.

but nonetheless, fine. i'd like a little recovery-time,
so i won't discuss it right now, but i can point y'all to
an interesting article, by joe hewitt, where he discusses
how he uses markdown with dropbox to handle his blog.

i will indeed want to discuss this article sometime later, so
christian, if you want to go read it, and start the discussion,
please feel free to contribute to the list in a meaningful way,
instead of whining, so -- in contrast to death from cancer --
nobody has to wonder if you are really that insensitive or not.
