  Nobody ever claimed anything like that.  You understood someone else
  to have implied that, but that doesn't mean they _claimed_ it.  Get
  your frigging facts right before your lack of precision in blaming
  people for something they didn't do gets someone killed or hurt.

  You know what I _do_ hate, Dirk Zoller?  Intellectual laziness.

  I agree with everything you say, but I would
  attack to death your right to say it.
