| Yeah, you are the injured party.

  Yes, in fact.  Just because you feel injured, too, does not give you the
  "right" to go after and hurt others on purpose, and that is precisely
  what you do.

  If _you_ were injured, you would seek a way to cause less injury, not
  cause more of it.  Thus, you are not injured, but you are hateful and
  vengeful.  I have tried to make you stop, but you keep going with more
  and more evil.  People observe this and draw their solid conclusions.
  But I am actually happy to see you self-destruct.  I just wish it would
  happen a _lot_ fastesr.

| Poor Erik, getting all this harassment.  It's so unfair, since you are
| the very soul of propriety, kindness, and decorum.

  Was that the University of California at Irvine _Kindergarten_ graduate

  It is getting pretty obvious that you are _thoroughly_ evil, Thomas
  Bushnell, and that you defend your evil by attacking someone that you
  think is "bad" and therefore not "deserving" of good behavior.  What if
  you were wrong?  What if _you_ are the bad guy and _you_ get what you
  deserve?  People like you never ask that question, because you think all
  you need is good intention.  But where does the road lead that is paved
  with good intentions?  They are waiting for you.

  Why are you nutjobs so unable to behave such that people might _want_ to
  treat you better or even nicely?  What happend to the other cheeK?  What
  is your ethics worth if you use it to hurt people you hate?  Is this the
  whole Middle East in some kind of miniature?

  Cease and desist, Thomas Bushnell.  Fight your deamons privately.

  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.
