| Third, if somebody is ignorant of Franz' policy, why would any
| intelligent person assume criminal intent?

  the fact that he said explicitly that he did not want to pay Franz Inc's
  prices and the fact that he had already established that he was looking
  for a _copy_ from someone other than Franz Inc.  plus, he's trying to
  deny what he actually said and attempt to rewrite it.  you've been had.

| Assuming, of course, that this is against Franz licenses, which nobody
| has said is the case.

  if you wish to be taken seriously, you need to stop denying replies to
  your questions.  otherwise, it becomes necessary to believe that you have
  an agenda whose personal value to you far exceeds the truth.

| I will point out that accusing somebody of criminal intent in a

  in other words, what you're doing now is grounds for a lawsuit in the U.S.
  now quote the _accusations_ you see, or apologize for even hinting at it!

| It is considered a serious thing, and not to be taken lightly, by many
| people.  It might be well to acquire the habit of not making such
| accusations lightly.

  so why do you do it so lightly?  are _you_ above the law?  one has to
  wonder with all the "what me?  I'm not one of _them!_"-style rhetorics
  you serve up, where everything that applies to others could not in your
  most lively imagination apply to yourself.  in case you wonder, such lack
  of empathy and principle in judgment is one of the root causes of
  interminable conflicts, and you're well on your wan to keep this going
  for nearly four years, just like the other loser does.  stop now.  reel
  yourself in and start _thinking_.
