Sorry, like Roman said I'm not native speaker. And I'm not sure of the 
emotional component of things I type. To be honest no matter what form I 
use I tend to be neutral in general (or so I thought).

(Except some very rare cases. I recall that I told something harsh in 
response to the "brilliant idea" of turning enforce into assert with 
some version statement)

I meant something like this:

You were almost shouting or demanding (or so it seemed to me). I think 
this was the first time I insulted somebody uninterruptedly and that 
went totally unexpected for me.

And bad, as it seems I need to refresh my word/phrase selection :)

If anything I'm not about to make any statements aimed at a particular 
person. If there was insult, I'm sorry as I failed to spot emotional 
context of things I posted.

OK, glad we are (sort of) having some agreement.
