Unfortunately, I indulged him, and then we ran out of time. I | was hoping to dicuss syntax etc, but no matter. There's very little | worth saying, really. After all, it has already been said. | | As for Erik's flaming...We didn't have time to discuss that, either. you know, for a person who professes not to talk about people but about so and so random and irrelevant issue, you have a bizarre hangup with discussing those people who _reject_ your pathetic attempts at "contact". the first thing I told you in your unsolicted, unwanted phone call was that it wasn't a good time to call because I had a friend coming over and had to clean up a little first. I had to tell you that I had to hang up because of my invited guest _five_times_ and you still kept talking and talking and I had no option but to hang up on you. I keep the phone number in the Organization header and on my home page and stuff like that because I want to give people I'd like to talk to a chance to reach me. I do _not_ keep it there to invite stalkers and pathetic wannabes a chance to annoy me. I also seem to remember you telling me that you had lots of people who agreed with you and me encouraging you to talk to them instead of bothering _me_ all the time. and we didn't run out of time, you pathetic liar, _you_ had no time to run out of to begin with since you were going on overtime from the very start. yes, I have blocked your e-mail with the same software that blocks equally undesired unsolicited commercial e-mail, but you keep mailing me from other addresses, flat out refusing to take a hint. how many ways and how many times do I need to tell you that I DO NOT WANT TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU. I thought I had made this exceptionally clear, but when I don't want to talk to you, you take this public with despicable lies about what you did. this is _unbelievably_ tasteless. I cannot fathom what you think you can gain from me that you want so badly as to attempt to extort it from me with this abominable form of blackmail that you engage in. GO AWAY, Martin Rodgers! #\Erik -- 404 You're better off without that file. Trust me.
