| Aw, does it make you feel bad to have people talk about you in
| unflattering tones?

  It has no possible constructive function in this newsgroup, but is an
  obvious personal exchange between you two, who have found something you
  can gang up on, nonthinkingly, yet apparently uniting in your affinity
  for toying with people.  Yet another bystander has entered the game,
  willing to fight, but not to help reduce what he obviously considers bad.
  Thus the badness increases and when two bad people gang up on one, the
  result is much more evil than one bad person acting alone, because you
  are able to drive up eachothers hatred and hostility unchecked.  This is
  the group frenzy of hateful mobs in miniature.  Most people are smart and
  ethical enough to figure this out, and stay out of such situations and do
  not cheer people on, either.  As soon as some immoral idiot does, more
  people feel compelled to join the fray, which is why you should not cheer
  eachother on, but stop to think about what you do.  You two do not, which
  indicates that this is not a desire to see change for the better in this
  newsgroup, it is only a desire to hurt and destroy.  There is no longer
  any doubt about your character or your goals, Thomas Bushnell.

  You two are now _only_ being destructive here.  Cease and desist.

  This is only a reaction to your behavior.  No action on your part, no
  reaction on mine is necessary.  Everybody knows what I think of evil
  bastards like you, but you keep obsessing about posting your hatred for
  that monster you have given my name in your deluded mind, and that is,
  frankly, annoying.  I do not feel bad when people of your moral caliber
  show their true nature.  You do not elicit such emotion, only disgust
  that you keep posting and making it necessary to respond to you in the
  hopes that you will shut the fuck up, but you are not going to, are you?

  Cease and desist, Thomas Bushnell.  _You_ are the aggressor.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
