| You give Erik way too much importance.

  Not quite true.  People like Raffael give _people_ in general way too
  much importance, failing to understand the role of people.  That's how
  it is possible for him to make the _kind_ of idiotic argument he makes
  in the first place.  It is people like that him who scare _technical_
  people off, like stalkers and unwanted sexual advances from people who
  don't know when to keep their _personal_ "interests" to themselves.
  To Raffael, this _is_ deeply personal.  He does not understand that
  there is _nothing_ personal in what I do.  He never will, either.
  This Aaron jerk is bordering on a becoming a lost case because he,
  too, believes that this is personal, and fails to understand that his
  _person_ has nothing whatsoever to do with this, only his choices and
  his actions, which he has shown us that he is unlikely to change, just
  like Raffael is unlikely ever to change his, and therefore will never
  see a different reaction to his choices and actions, either.

  Solution to U.S. Presidential Election Crisis 2000:
    Let Texas secede from the Union and elect George W. Bush their
    very first President.  All parties, states would rejoice.
