  I do not pretend to be concerned with "good behavior".

  Only those who attack me because they want me to behave better.  I thus
  demonstrate that what they try does not work on them, either.

  I criticize _and correct_ people's mistakes.  Some nutjobs go ballistic
  and turn everything into a personal vendetta at this point.  If you are
  the kind who cannot read criticism of your actions without taking it
  personally, you will not see any difference.  If you are the kind who
  cannot understand things in context, no amount of clarification will ever
  change your mind about what you think you see.  But go back through this
  thread and see when Thomas Bushnell decides to attack me.

  Nice of you to speak for all third parties, though.

  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.
