At least in french, when we say that "a better/sharper question would
be" it implies that previous question was not sharp/smart. 

May be in english this is not the case, I’m sorry my english is rather basic. 
I thought that adding “er” at the end of adjective meant more. So by construction
it means that other are less. I do not know I’m not good in logic either. 

May be you do see it but I felt that you were saying that
and this is why I reacted because I do not like when people lower other people in this mailing-list.

Of course I could have say using the same pattern, that a nicer/smarter/shaper answer would
have been not to show off and to reply to the question. And when another
 person would have mentioned it, I would have decline my intention.

Again, as professional developers and teachers, I believe that we know all that.
But thanks for your wisdom. It seemed to me that it was quite 
a common and basic knowledge. 

But again this was not the questions.
