Hehe, I think it is good that he interferes as little as possible...both for himself and for us. (sorry 'bout talking about you like you're not here) :o)
> We love him really :-)
I think he deserves all the best, just like everyone else here. ((((everyone))))
> Although... Maybe this is a picky point but you can't 'confirm' a hypothesis - you are better off to 'disconfirm' a hypothesis. So really, you have found disconfirming evidence for the hypothesis that he is malevolent.

Yep, you are entirely correct on that one. (I should have known better, with me heading into a career in science and all.) :-)
I just thought it best to not express things in a way that focuses on the negative...we don't have to be scientists or philosophers here. :-)
