  Good, we're beginning to enter "attack through generalization" space,
  and this just after you stupidly attacked me for just what you think
  is a very good idea when you do it.  I'm frankly amazed.  I thought
  you were smarter than to walk into the traps you keep setting for me.

  Well, in line with your stated and preferred approach, what can I say
  but "always the snide remark from Marcus".  Try _breathing_ between
  your snide remarks, Marcus -- you're running on recycled exhaust.

  Very true, you think and behave like the outsider who thinks he does
  not influence and participate in that to which he is in fact _not_ an
  outsider.  The fact that you _keep_ posting your peculiar kind of
  never-ending snide remarks and condescending, disrespectful idiocy,
  apparently _unable_ to do anything else in a public forum, is among
  the causes of hostility and negativity here.  You can improve (read:
  quit the moron act) and the forum will improve, too.  The time may
  come when you realize this (and I do _not_ want to be there when it
  happens).  On the other hand, it has been said that most people would
  rather die than think, and many do, so I'm beginning to believe that
  there is nothing in you whatsoever except a generator of snide remarks
  and hostility, negativity, and destruction.  You have never, ever
  managed to do anything else towards me and that puts you in a class of
  perhaps a dozen people, worldwide.  Very few people are so emotionally
  prejudiced and, frankly, _sick_, that they block their ability to
  think for so long as you have done.  I have suggested in various
  subtle and not so subtle wayts that you just snap out of it for years
  and years, but nothing ever happens.  You'll just shut up for a while
  and then you come back with some rehashed snide remark, which any lab
  rat in maze would have known doesn't _work_.  So that must be how you
  prefer to deal with the world so much that whether you succeed or not
  is completely immaterial to you.  The fact is: you go away for a while
  and I stay.  95% of the people I have been harsh to over the years
  have cleaned up their act and some have even become close friends,
  especially those who figure out that if you want to influence me, you
  do it through competence and intelligence, not Marcus G. Danielsisms.

  Sorry for being soft on you tonight.  My cat has been hospitalized.
