@JonEricson, are you around?
 
@MonicaCellio I'm just about ready to leave and go home.
But I can stick around for a few more minutes. ;-)
 
@JonEricson I'm looking for some advice and/or sanity check. It's nothing new that Bob and I have pretty different perspectives on the text, but I feel like I've been responding more to him in the last few days and I worry about how I'm coming across. Am I being too critical?
 
@MonicaCellio Hmmm....
He needs some push back, I think.
I don't see anything that raised a flag for me. Do you have an example?
 
@JonEricson I got to thinking about this after responding to his comments on your answer on the puns question. I agree he needs push-back sometimes, but maybe I do too. Am I coming across in a way that would makes others hesitate to push back on me?
 
3:03 AM
@MonicaCellio Hard to know. I always agree with you. ;-)
 
@JonEricson Oh, I hadn't realized!
 
I'll tell you what: I'll sleep on it and check in again tomorrow.
 
@JonEricson Sounds good. Thanks! And thanks for the bounty tonight, too.
 
@MonicaCellio (It might have been an exaggeration. But I do agree with you often.)
 
@JonEricson :-)
 
3:04 AM
@MonicaCellio Hoping to give it to Eli. ;-)
G'night.
 
@JonEricson Yeah, I didn't answer initially because I thought he was going to. Oh well, next time. G'night!

@JonEricson, in case you didn't see this -- while you were out: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/3709/…
 
5:35 PM
@MonicaCellio Awesome. I was actually going to suggest something along those lines. Only I thought I'd need to be involved as a go-between.
@MonicaCellio Do you feel better about the situation? (Should have asked that first, I suppose.)

@JonEricson I do, thanks. I was trying to calibrate the reasonableness of my own behavior and I'd never seen him in chat before where it's easier to work things out. I've been told (recently) that I can be intimidating and that's certainly not my intent.
 
@MonicaCellio Excellent.
 
@JonEricson Wow, I talk and he appears! :-) (I didn't see you here when I typed that...) Anyway, since I think of you as one of the BH elders and since you were posting comments last night within seconds of me, I thought you'd be a good person to consult. Thanks for the help and the ear.
 
@MonicaCellio Sure! I have a BH tab and a SE chat tab open pretty much all the time.
 
@JonEricson I keep a BH tab around too. (Also Mi Yodeya, not surprisingly. :-) ) Thanks again and have a good weekend.
 
@MonicaCellio Shabbat shalom!
 
6:56 PM
@JonEricson Thanks, you too! (No need to be exclusive here. :-) )

Absentee notice: I'm going to be somewhat less active over the next two weeks or so. I haven't quit the site or anything: vacation.
