  So this is what you finally sink to.  I am frankly quite disappointed.
  You started this personal vendetta, John Foderaro.  Doing that with me is
  pretty darn stupid.  Now that you recognize that you are losing, you are
  turning into an Erann Gat.  Your new line of _threatening_ is also pretty
  amazing.  Who do you think you are?  The IRS?  And how much money do you
  think you have caused Franz Inc. to lose because of your behavior by now?
  If you had been able to back down and listen to people, this could have
  been an interesting technical discussion that could have resulted in some
  of your retarded views not looking quite so retarded.  _Arguing_ for your
  views seems to be one of your least developed skills, however.  Now that
  you recognize this, all you can do is bicker over references.  I am
  frankly amazed that you think you can win anything that way, but hey,
  that is precisely why I have beat you into the ground and not vice versa.

  Just shut up, John Foderaro.  There is no other way to control the damage
  you do to yourself and to your employer.

  Where are your requirements of substantiation when you speak about me?
  As long a you keep posting obvious misrepresentations of what I say, your
  demands are so hypocritical as to be _moronic_.  Why you want to appear
  that way to people is, however, beyond me.  But now that you have done
  more damage to yourself than I ever could do to you, perhaps it is time
  to let you crawl back to your miserable cave and lick your wounds.
