You said:

"..The purpose of correcting Yoram's spelling mistake was obviously not to teach, it was more like a punch below the belt- if teaching was the intention then it would best have been done in private, and not in public"...

Can we say that if Dr. Pipes did not intend to exercise his right as a teacher by kindly teaching, but as you said to punch below the belt, perhaps none of us in the third perspective would be right, for example, that Dr. Pipes has the right to be so exhausted sometimes, so, let's say that he outbursted- as a result of a relief, not an attack, for what to this very moment nor I did understand Yoram's aim.

So 1. To teach Yoram (NO).

2. To mock him (No).

3. Outsburts (perhaps).

As I said, it was also such nonsense that Yoram retreated so fast from his initial position upon which he attacked Dr. Pipes, which leads me to think that Yoram used danielpipes.org popularity for self propaganda, and Yoram knew in advance that the motto that states that a Diaspora Jew has no right to put his finger on the Israeli issue (for what he does not "suffer" like Israelis), would be addressed by Dr. Pipes as a way to find a reason for Yoram's attack against him.

No...Yoram knew it would camouflage his real aim....I'm more convinced than ever and Dr. Pipes has the right to counter attack, enough to shut Yoram's mouth, for the sake of not having his time wasted.

To be honest yet, I'm curious to know the end of that, in regards to Yoram's Aim.
