Okay, after reviewing the post in the archives, my foremost complaint is  
it was incorrect grammar. It has to have the "-ed" suffix to be correct.  
In that case, of course, the literal meaning would be pretty negative. But  
it wasn't, and I don't know where to balance this out, but I stand by my  
original comments in the past, and backed up by our host, Tim:

Edit such posts; don't just forward whatever you got from someone else.  
That's an insult to the readers on the list. Then if you really find such  
words proper, you can defend it on your own grounds.
