Did they insult you if you didn't grasp a point?

One of the attributes of a mentor is patience.  To insult is
to be at cross-purposes to your stated intent.

Curmudgeon = 1. Miser  2. A crusty, ill-tempered, and usually old 
man. (Webster)
Does this portray a "mentor"?

Although this thread has been a game of semantics, obvious to all who have

they have been civil.

Jim, you're doing a lot of good.  Infuse it with a bit of humility and no one
will put you on their "delete" list.  :-)
