  What makes you think anyone will believe you if you claim that you did
  not know what you let yourself in on when you opened fire on me?  Have
  you apologized for anything you have said?  No.  Are you going to?  No.
  If you are so unable to understand your own role that you _stupidly_ have
  to make your own behavior and an accurate description of them someone
  else's problem, you deserve everything you got.

  You knew what you were going to.  You picked a fight.  You got it.  Now
  you are sore that you lost.  Get over yourself.

  Considering the early mail exchange we had, where you seemed to provide
  me with proof of your understanding of the need not to engage in flame
  wars and the fact that you still did, I think I have ample grounds for my
  determination of your lack of exercise of whatever intellectual abilities
  you might possess.  You have dug your own grave.  Deal with it.

  Quit whining and just behave intelligently.  That is your redemption:
  Render my discription inaccurate.  As of now, it is very accurate, and
  the more you continue whining the way you do, the more accurate it gets.

  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.

  Post with compassion:
