Re: Bleach and Direct Carbon

I admit that I have interpreted that "but" like an "if not", but I also believed that John could not be so common.
My apologies for my malice.

I believe there is some misinterpretation somewhere. The above sentence does
not mean that John thinks of us as dummies. It means he does NOT think any
of us is dummy. The "but" means "except" in the sentence.
