  Better call George W. Bush and have him stage a war like you have never
  seen in order to squash this terrorism.  Oh, come to think of it, that is
  _precisely_ what happens.  I just happen to believe that posting idiotic
  drivel to a technical newsgroup is terrorism, and squash it.  Gee, can it
  be as simple as differing priorities?  Some people like nice people who
  say nothing controversial whatsoever.  Other people like controversial

  My supposed "enemies list" is another creation of Erann Gat.  Like most
  everything else he imputes to me, it does of course not exist.  You are
  entitled to your opinion, although you are clearly not sufficiently aware
  of what you think to make a worthwhile contribution to this forum.  Why

  Erann Gat and his style encourages, and I am saddened to see someone like
  yourself lured into his trap out of overly emotional reasons.  If you had
  kept this shit to yourself, you would not have _contributed_ to the
  hostile tone set by Erann Gat and others who mistakenly believe they
  fight evil, when they are themselves much worse than whatever it is they

  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
