Now that you have introduced yourself, would you mind telling us what, precisely, you think are doing here? Are you the kind of person who enjoy ganging up on people you think are disliked by some majority? Are you the kind of person who think it is fun to tease people you do not like? Are you a kind of Thomas Bushnell light? Will you turn into psychopath in about three months after you have gone into a psychotic state of mind where all that matters is how you feel about me? Your contributions to this forum are restricted to stupid harrassment of me. Are you sure this is how you want to be remembered? Is this what William Hodges as a person is really about? Will your future employers find that you have done a brilliant job of presenting yourself in public given this great display of intellect and high moral standards? Why _do_ you crawl out of the woodwork to attack me? I have never said or done anything to _you_, about _you_, or in any way even remotely related to _you_, have I? I do not know you at all, apart from your harrassment. What kind of person _are_ you? Thomas Bushnell is the kind of psychopath who really, deeply and personally _enjoys_ hurting people. You applaud this in your own, lamebrained way. Did you know he is gay and want some action by sucking up to him that way? I have to wonder, and I shall keep an open mind about you, but I must say, you have done an excellent job of repelling any fair-minded, intelligent person. People like you are well remembered. I know employers who have called me up on the phone and told me that they have found a disturbingly high correlation between employees they have had to fire because they ahave been incompetent and their tendency to get into fights with me on USENET. So far, I have been used as a negative reference for six people -- people have _not_ got a job because they have chosen to fight with me on USENET. How good is _your_ job security? Do you think you are able to hurt me more than I can hurt you? Several people have bet a lot of their personal prestige on that and they have lost. I have hung around on USENET since 1987. I am used to cretins like you. I _know_ I can survive slaughtering you. I know I have nothing at all to risk in ripping you apart. Nothing I can do to you will be _worse_ than what some people will already argue that I have done. What do _you_ have to lose if you me engage and fail to win? Thomas Bushnell had already lost serious fights and is widely considered to be impossible to work with _before_ he started to fight me. Were you aware of that? How much of your future are you going to risk on the inane drivel you have posted so far? Just how much money are you prepared to pay for your abilty to harrass me? Go back to the nowhere you came from, William Hodges, before you hurt yourself, or I _will_ help you. Do you understand what you have started? Here's a puzzle for you: If I am as evil and ruthless and destructive as some people here think I am, why did _you_ choose to pick on me? Do you think you are safe behind that computer display of yours? Do you think I cannot make you feel really, really bad? Look at Thomas Bushnell. Do you think his display is the result of strong and healthy psyche? Or do you think it is _fear_ that drives him? How can it be that people can be driven to such behavior as you can readily find in the archives just by posting messages to a public forum? Have you thought about this? What, precisely, have you prepared yourself to experience when you choose to attack me, of all people? And what can I do to change your mind apart from inflicting such pain on you that you will turn as mad as so many others who choose to attack me? Go through the archives and find people who have come out of nowhere to attack me. Look what they managed to say before they vanished. Look at their articles and try to imagine their state of mind. Do you think it feels good? Do you think it is mindless fun? Do you think Thomas Bushnell is such a lowlife that he has no other forms of amusement in his life that he has to tease me? No, of course not. His is an obsession with me, just as other a few other people have an obsession with me. For days, perhaps weeks on end, all they think about, nearly all they _do_ is to post insane ranting and raving against my person. Where are they now? Do you want to go where they went? Is that why you crawl out of your woodwork to attack me and harrass me? There are people here who are on psychiatric medication because of what they got themselves into by attacking me. If you think me mad or insane, do you think I would care if you died in pain from what I could do to you? If you think that _I_ am the bad guy here, do you think I would _not_ find out as much as possible about you in order to hurt you as much as possible? Remember, _you_ chose to attack and harrass me. It was your choice to open fire, from nowhere, for no reason whatsoever. I see it as my _right_ to bring people like you down. You will not be the first. You will not be the last. Would you _really_ like to be the next? THINK, William Hodges. This forum is _not_ for your kind of people.
