| I'm going to quit reading this newgroup for  a while.  It's more like a
| war zone than an intellectual discussion.

  Would you mind if I took credit for this by arguing that you ran away
  with you tail between your legs when you were simply asked to provide
  references for your increasingly psychotic claims and prove all the
  insane crap you claim about other people?

| Maybe this will have the effect of calming Erik down although I fear that
| you're in for reading a few more months of person insults directed at me.

  I think you have never grasped that you had the opportunity to discuss
  this on technical terms, but never took it.  You started calling people
  "religious" right off the bat as soon as they disagreed with you, and you
  have not stopped, even though several people, including myself, have put
  forth arguments that you _should_ have taken seriously if you had any
  other interest than making this a personal fight.  This has been personal
  for you all the time, because if* is a _psychological_ issue to you.  You
  lose such fights if you pick them with me, because I do not attack the
  person as _such_, which you have been doing all the time, I attack the
  person for something they _do_, for which the are actually responsible,
  but which they can quit doing, and then the criticism will cease, too.
  You have never understood this, and I think this explains why you behave
  so incredibly stupidly and are so self-destructive.  You _keep_ doing
  things that must be criticized, even according to your _own_ standards,
  and you are not quitting, but defending yourself, which means that the
  criticism can only intensify.  Your failure to grasp what you have been
  criticized for is acutally a pretty good sign that you are mentally ill
  and naturally think other people are, too.  Other people have, in fact,
  understood the arguments as they have been presented, and they are not
  aliases for me (I was amazed you would sink so low as to post anything
  _that_ stupid and paranoid).

| I may check back in six months to see if things have improved.

  While I expect your response to this message.  Surprise me and shut up
  for six months.

| I'm sorry that you had to endure all those flame postings.

  Like a bank robber who returns to the scene of the crime and wants to
  "apologize" for his transgressions and scaring the bejeezus out of
  innocent people, this is just too disgusting to watch.  You had a choice
  not to flame anyone to begin with.  You are just too childish to play the
  role of the "responsible" until you think you can win anything by it.

  Let us hope our freedom from your crappy articles in this newsgroup will
  be even longer than six months.  If necessary, I will have a few friends
  of mine stage a mock fight in the middle of May just to keep you away.

  Norway is now run by a priest from the fundamentalist Christian People's
  Party, the fifth largest party representing one eighth of the electorate.
  Carrying a Swiss Army pocket knife in Oslo, Norway, is a criminal offense.
