Sorry but I think you should take responsibility for your own opinions and 
actions. That feeling that you mention is your feeling not mine. If you have 
that feeling then you DO know that it is arrogant. If you then persuade 
yourself that you don't know then you are deluding yourself.

To me it did not sound like a fair question because it did not deal in any way 
with the merit or demerit of Adriano's ideas. So it came across as a question 
from someone who had run out of valid arguments.
Only you know the real intent behind the question I do not but it came across 
to me as rhetorical question designed to undermine Mr. Petrosillo's right to 
have an opinion. In the event Adriano did answer the question by telling us 
about some of his projects. In my opinion that was noise that would not have 
been necessary if his right to have his opinion had not been questioned but 
maybe others found it interesting.

I don't mind tough questions. I haven't asked any questions myself but I have 
expressed some forthright opinions. I am not completely convinced that I have 
got it right. I am aware that I am criticising your behaviour here but I have 
tried hard not to let my posting descend into trading of personal insults. I 
hope that I have succeeded in that.
