| I assumed you were able to use basic information tools to locate the
| information you need.  I'll give you a head start.  You want the
| Department of Philosophy at UC Irvine.

  I want you to provide the name and address of the people you want to
  implicate.  If you are too much of a coward to name them, you are only
  doing more of your immensely stupid and abusive tactics.

| I accuse you of being a coward with your accusations, rather like a
| garden variety neighborhood bully.

  So is this worse or better than accusing Kent Pitman of hypocrisy?
  Why do you not _learn_?

  Why are you so retarded that you challenge the neighborhood bully all the
  time when you are the only party that suffers?

| So I expect you to put into your letter that you think I am an idiotic
| moron, intellectually dishonest, etc.

  What I will do is inform your superiors of your need to use them as a
  shield and guarantors of your ability to think.  I just need their names
  and addresses, because you have started this challenge.  Asking me to
  figure out which people _you_ want to implicate is simply idiotic.

| Oh, and CC me the letter, of course.  If you have the courage of your
| convictions, you'll be willing to see them stood up to more public
| scrutiny, right?

  I have the courage of my convictions, idiot, but your "department" or
  advisor or whatever do not have any bearing on your behavior here until
  _you_ implicate them, and you have.

  The more you keep this idiotic charade up and the more you implicate
  them, the more your department needs to hear about you.  Otherwise, there
  is no need to implicate them at all.

  You remain a brainless idiot, Thomas Bushnell.  Have you _no_ friends who
  can tell you how stupid you are behaving?  Or worse, do you have some
  "friends" who enjoy that you make a spectacle of yourself?

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
