Well, so maybe I am a little oversensitive. Apparently I was not supposed to take "ludicrous" to be a response to me in particular at all. So everything's hunky-dory.

I guess. I think it's hard for me to get used to the liberally irritable communication practices customary among faculty in this department.

Just yesterday I was telling someone to lighten up (OK, I was being much more diplomatic than that) for similar reasons. I.e., a colleague said something hurtful, but clearly didn't mean it to be as hurtful as it was taken. That doesn't stop it from hurting.

Can't we all just get along?
