You can have your own rant about "user-defined binary operators being 
over-used within the R community" without suggesting that my rant was 
rude. I don't think it was and, in any case, I was not going after a 
individual in particular. Contrary to popular belief and to what I tell 
my daughter, rolling your eyes in public is not rude at all and is 
actually a lot of fun. You should try it ;-)
