  I'm actually curious: why do you think Raffael Cavallaro's contributions
  are laudable and applaudable?  how come you "back" him and decide to go
  public with it, if what you say here is true?  why is his abuse to be
  defended?  do you actually see him as a poor, defenseless person who has
  every right to defend himself, and I have no right to voice my strong
  disagreement with his numerous unfounded attacks against my person?  and
  why is it better to attack a person in vague, general terms with no sign
  of a cease of attacks in sight than to attack a few specific things he
  chooses to do, which he can choose to cease to do, taking all criticism
  with it?  since you take a stand, and fault me, I must assume that you
  see nothing at all wrong with Raffael Cavallaro.  is that indeed true?
