Too bad, Bob's taken me to the woodshed a couple times for sloppy writing - and I learned from it. And he's accepted criticism for exactly the same thing. After all, this is a newsgroup and our missives aren't regularly publication quality work; there are plenty of opportunities to clarify our thoughts and straightenout  our thinking.

If a contributor doesn't show signs of learning from mistakes, Bob lays it on.
