<br>> Silvia's interpretation of your email was almost identical to mine.
<br>> When your  email is consistently interpreted in a way that differs from
<br>> your intent then  you should consider whether it's your writing ability
<br>> that's lacking not other  people's ability to interpret it.
<br>With hundreds of people reading this list, I don't believe two failures in communication represents a consistent problem.  In one of those cases the correspondant repeatedly drew the same incorrect meaning despite my various attempts to correct the misunderstanding.  That looks very much like willfulness rather than mistake. </p>
