Under no circumstances whatsoever will you ever lecture me about
whatever terminology I choose to use.

You obviously lack the intellect to comprehend what was meant by my
reference to Google.

Your commentary is both unnecessary, unwelcome.

I ask that you never again respond to anything I post to this list
and any attempt at private contact will be ignored.

Please let this be an end to this thread.  

Sorry, Dave, but it should not end there: AFAICS (and if you see
differently, please say how), Luuk has done nothing but try to help.
He gave a solution to your problem (maybe not quite optimal, but one
that you adopted in the end) and tried to show you how to access
Michael's Google Drive file (which as inadvertently posted without
public read privilege; as it happens, even if you had a Google
account, you would have still needed to request to see the file).

OK, I get it: you don't like Google. That is your right. FWIW, I use
my account rarely (never mail from it, and all mail to it forwards
directly my regular email account), but the account is occasionally
useful for taking advantage of Google services like collaboration
tools (when initiated by others) or correcting Google browsing tag
errors. That's all Luuk was trying to say: you don't have to let
Google into your life to make use of some handy tools they offer. As
he put it:

If you create such an account (i do not say you have to ), you
still have the possibility to only use it under 'special'

Does that helpful hint warrant the kind of abuse you just delivered
-- especially after he helped solve your problem?

+1 I support John's position. On the face of it, it is Dave (OP/OU) who
is being unreasonable.
