There's more than one way to be insulting, magikceph. I don't think that Thales would be unreasonable to feel insulted that you can't be bothered to read the articles and posts he and many others have written in detail about cuttlefish care, because you'd apparently rather make him (or anyone else) type it in again. That comes across as telling him that his time and effort is much less important than yours. I find that attitude far more insulting than his pointing out that you are coming across as rude. Most of the time, if someone has gone to the trouble to tell you that you are coming across as rude, it's worth asking yourself "what did I do to make this person think I was rude" rather than saying "you've insulted me, so I'm going to get offended."
