It has often puzzled me why when knowledgeable members of mailing
lists such as this, find fault in what someone, less qualified than 
themselves, suggests. It is not taken via private mail but splashed
on the mailing list.

Don't take it personally. It's just a quirk of list netiquette. It's
considered rude to post a private message to somebody as a result of a
list postings, unless specifically invited. Plus by posting it to the
list Brian makes sure that any other people who were also in any doubt
about what had gone before also have the same new information to
clarify their thinking. So there's no criticism of you intended.

He perhaps could have chosen slightly better phrasing to avoid
irritating you, but such events are part of life on a mailing list,
where not everybody has perfect skills in written English plus a
considerate personality.
