Your rabid dishonesty about me is really getting on my nerve. Why is it so important to you to lie, misrepresent, defame, and hurt me? You are a very bad person, Erann Gat.

Sigh. I was really hoping to end this, but I cannot allow this libel to go unchallenged. I responded that it was a fair summary, you said it was a gross distortion and went nuts, but I ACTUALLY SAID "IT SEEMS TO ME", SO YOU SHOULD HAVE GIVEN ME THE EXACT SAME LATITUDE THAT YOU DEMAND FOR YOURSELF. | I wish you the best of luck in your new career. Thanks. The likelihood of finding fewer and less bad guys than you in a legal practice is one of the reasons. I am so profoundly tired of bad people like yourself and of having no functional way to respond to your evil. It is in part vicious, destructive, unprincipled characters like yourself who opened my eyes to the need for legal infrastructure, people who take _personal_ revenge upon those who do nothing more than speak their mind, who make a suggestion they do not like, etc. In truth, we have no way to get rid of people who have to seek personal revenge, but at least some education in the one way our society has found to deal with the apparently "human" tendency to irrationally hostile responses and vigilante justice and lynch mobs seems to help. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
