  The more you continue to misrepresent what I have said, the more people
  will realize what the real problem is.  I have a profound trust in the
  ability of people to see through the kind of unintelligent manipulation
  that you and some really stupid politicians engage in when they run out
  of arguments.

  From someone who has already done a marvellous job of proving that he
  cannot distinguish fact from fiction, I am impressed that you found the
  need to prove it to us.

  There is no such thing outside of your deranged mind.

  You are not sure?  Geez.  You destroyed my trust in Franz Inc's ability
  to be a business partner when I was looking at another Common Lisp
  project.  Through your amazing stupidity and your idiotic desire to break
  with the standard over actually supporting Common Lisp projects, you made
  it abundantly clear that I could no longer take any financial risks that
  involved Franz Inc as a supplier.  This did not make you an enemy, though.

  Yup, you're the guy who speaks only for yourself.

  Geez.  Disrespect for people who are smarter than you seems to be deeply

  That is so not what you have been flamed for.  Your constant manipulative
  deception is what you get flamed for.  Get some professional help.

  I wish.
