They say you should learn from your mistakes
This is one of the best blog posts I ever read. Great! "Pain can be healthy." Gee, I never thought about it in this way so far...If there was a way to rate posts, I'd give you a five stars cum laude.

After having given the subject some thought, I realised that Simon probably (or very likely) included a fair measure of sarcasm in his comment. I agree that it would be more sensible of me to write that "Pain should serve as a reminder..." or that "Pain exists for a reason, which we shouldn't overlook before we gulp a generous measure of pain-killers."
"Pain is healthy" doesn't really hold water because health implies the absence of pain. However, I would have appreciated it more if Simon just said he disagreed with me or that the wording is awkward or paradoxical...
I accept the fact that I am a human and am happy to be able to correct mistakes, lapses in logic, incorrect spelling etc. However, I am not very fond of sarcasm. Actually, I do not like it at all and would kindly ask my readers to avoid using sarcasm as a means of expression in their comments. In my opinion sarcasm is amusement for miserable people.
Whatever you have to say to me can be said in a straightforward manner without resorting to a passive aggressive sort of mockery.
