  the persistence among some of the stupider people on this newsgroup to
  make wild claims about issues they have no _possible_ way of knowing is
  alarming.  why can't people just confine themselves to discuss what they
  _can_ know something about?  surely, you can find something to attack in
  what I _have_ said or done, instead of having to _invent_ what you attack
  me for.  every time I see idiots attack an obvious invention of their own
  mind that they want to be me, I have to wonder whether I do nothing wrong
  at all, and that seems fairly unlikely, but at least it's good to see
  that even the most hostile idiots around can't find an _actual_ flaw.
