Why on earth should he be?  He wasn't the target of the apparent insult.    (02)

Do you even know what "projection" means? You should keep your  
armchair psychologizing to yourself. For the record, I "took no  
insult" from your words either. The motivation for my reply was  
nothing other than a rather natural human response to a piece of  
sarcasm that was both uncalled for and, given your own bloviations,  
rather spectacularly ironic.  I'm willing to accept your claim that no  
insult toward Azamat was, in fact, intended.  If so, you should learn  
to choose your words more carefully.    (04)
