Greetings,

It is unfortunate that you do not find enough context in my post. I strive to give it. Could you be so kind and elaborate what I missed out when I wrote the context "It is strange that you hate tabs when it is the tools that are doing it wrong." ?

As to why  I do not answer in context I can explain. I take "in the context" to mean inserting spurious lines here and there through out the original email. A very bad experience of that have put me off. The writer would edit the original email, removing things he deemed unimportant, and then answer the resulting mess as unhelpfully as possible. The helpfulness sort of made sense given how badly mangled the original email had become. Unpleasant.

However, now that the only person ever to become upset enough to actually write to me about how I write opinions as if they are facts, has decided that it is even worse to have to read that my opinions are my opinions, I will stop doing that.
