Please just stop it. It was escalation of talk like this yesterday which
stoked the whole thing up and lead to someone feeling he had the right to
make dreadful breach of Peter's privacy.

And FWIW talk like "Who the HELL are you..." and "Shut the fuck up" and "kick
your ass" are no better than the talk complained of. IIRC correctly, this all
started with a complaint about Peter's obscure use of English. Add in
considerable transatlantic differences in perception of non-literary
language, and the L1 speaker of US English not going to have good control
over how this is received by the L2 speaker of US English. Result, it is
quite likely to flare up again.
