| At this point, why does Erik Naggum paraphrase the original message
| instead of quoting from it:

  you're quoting the wrong article, dude, and I wasn't responding to the
  original article in the first place.  get it straight or shut up.  try
  instead, with my response in <>.

  if you need evidence that quoting doesn't really help in understanding
  what's going on in a debate, consider your own reactions to what you have
  read.  you, too, make assumptions about what people mean that go far
  beyond any actually quotable text.  so, too, with everybody else.  the
  sooner you understand this, the less you will fall prey to assigning
  malicous intent to people, which it _seems_ you don't want others (i.e.,
  me) to do, but keep doing yourself, towards me.  I don't particularly
  respect such hypocricy, if that has been unclear up until now.  oK?
