| insults in it.

  That's because when you see it's from me, Barry, you can't see
  anything else.  You say so yourself: You prejudge my articles.
  Whatever you claim to see is certainly no excuse to accuse me of
  what _isn't_ there, which is what I'm reacting to, and which I'm
  challenging you to defend.  Your hatred is legendary, but it should
  stop short of false accusations.  Why doesn't it?  Are you insane?

  Now, give me some message-ID's where I "dish out" spelling and
  grammar flames or go kill yourself in shame, will you?

| Shouldn't the word be "indication", not "indictment"?

  Why do you _continue_ your spelling/grammar/etc bashing when you
  have _yet_ to prove that you have the right to do so?  Do you even
  remember by now that all this is predicated on your false accusation
  against me that _I_ dish out same so you can retaliate against me?
  So what is this?  Proactive retaliation, Barry Margolin style?  You
  have already established that you are more than willing to accuse
  people wrongly without remorse, as if your own psychosis is excuse
  enough to do whatever you want.  Have you killed any people because
  they "might" do you harm if they were as bad as you have conjured up
  your insane visions that they are?  Do you kill people, Barry?

| And do you deny that you take this tone frequently with posters who
| don't measure up to your expectations of language or technical
| precision?

  So _this_ is your justification for false accusations against me!
  I'm _so_ impressed.  What does it take for you to realize that what
  you keep doing is evil no matter what anyone else does in this world?

  Come on, now, give me some message-IDs where I "dish out" spelling
  and grammar flames!  You can do it, Barry, you can even figure out
  the checksum in my message-IDs and post some fakes, can't you?

| BTW, if you didn't use such an ideosyncratic quoting style, I would
| be less likely to prejudge your posts.

  No, I don't think so.  I don't think you are at all able _not_ to
  "prejudge" my posts.  It's all in your mind, Barry.  Please get some
  professional help to stop prejudging my posts.  It has nothing to do
  with the quoting style.  Seek professional counseling, Barry.

  And what, precisely, has kept you from reading my posts if they are
  so easily identifiable to you?  Are you so far into psychosis that
  you have lost whatever remnant of free will caused your evil, Barry?

  I'm looking forward to the message-IDs, so people can look at the
  whole article in context, because you sure can't, as that would
  deflate the entire defense for your incredibly evil behavior.

  You're much worse than I am, Barry: You hate.  You'll kill if you
  could get away with it, and I suspect that one day, perhaps in the
  past, you really will kill someone in that blind hatred of yours.

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