Dear Maciej!

While we are normally pretty tolerant about netiquette,
we usually don't expect formal titles like "sir" to be used.
Simple "hi" is enough, and no greeting in a response is quite
fine also. For languages like German where there is a difference
between a formal "you" and a colloquial "you", one can chose
either. Most prefer the informal "you" in German postings.

Another important thing: if you use sarcasm, mark that 
passage, eg. like this:
It's so good Maciej never picks on new posters to the ML.

Or just use the appropiate smiley: ;-)

A thing I really appreciate is that you shorten your quotes
to the relevant parts and you don't top-post. I wish more
people would follow that rules.

Oh, you're a Knight now? ;-)
