  Yes.  Of course you did.  You can't even read anything I say without
  _imputing_ so much vile crap to it that one _has_ to wonder whence
  it all comes.  There should be enough to attack me for in what I
  actually do, but you have to go out of your way to make it worse by
  attacking me for what I do not do, what I do not say, and you have
  _zero_ ability or willingness to question your own actions when you
  do this.  Have you ever wondered what this makes you?

  Try reading what I wrote again, and restrict yourself to what I
  wrote, no Barry-Margolin-interpretations of it this time, OK?.  I
  actually suggest you pretend someone else wrote it, so you can keep
  your head screwed on straight for a change.

  I'll answer the question a couple paragraphs up for you: You're the
  kind of man who would willingly jail and hang people for actions you
  _want_ them to have committed, Barry.  You've done this before, and
  you'll do it again, as you do not learn from your past mistakes.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
