  Rather, what you observe is that my responses to your behavior are somewhat
  similar -- to you.  This has _two_ possible reasons.  I regret that you are
  not smart enough to realize such a simple fact, because you will never change
  your behavior as long as you think you are not the aggressor.  I really would
  like to see a Thomas Bushnell that stopped being the aggressor.  So, at least
  wait until _I_ have attacked _you_ again before you conclude that _I_ have
  not progressed a single inch.  You see, _you_ do the attacking around here.
  Guide to non-spammers: If you want to send me a business proposal, please be
  specific and do not put "business proposal" in the Subject header.  If it is
  urgent, do not use the word "urgent".  If you need an immediate answer, give
  me a reason, do not shout "for your immediate attention".  Thank you.
