| Do you have a cheering bunch of similar idiots to yourself to back you up?

  No.  Do you lack the creativity to come up with anything new?

| Really, I expected you to be above such abject schadenfreude.

  Amazing.  Why?  Would you really believe someone you taunt and provoke to
  be "above" wanting you to suffer a long and painful death, too?  You are
  the classic school bully who believes that what you do is a "joke" until
  you get seriously hurt, and then that those who cause you to feel pain
  have to be sociopaths, but the fact that you attack people and provoke
  them and "expect them to dance" does not register with you.  But let me
  get back to this point below.

| I can only imagine how many hundrends of words of vitriol you'd cons up
| to express your moral outrage over such an "evil" point of view.

  It seems I got to you.

| I'm beginning to believe that there is nothing in you whatsoever except a
| generator of hostility, negativity, and destruction.

  Towards you?  I expect you to think and I am prepared to deal with you as
  a thinking being when you decide to think.  That is more generosity than
  you will ever experience again.  Otherwise, what do you think you deserve?

| What more direct evidence of your very serious personality disorders can
| we expect, now?  Get help, OK?

  Seems that someone is either not getting the joke, or is perhaps beginning
  to get it.  Either way, I am inordinately pleased that I got to you and
  that you finally feel pain.

| I've often wondered why the Net attracts so many sociopaths and
| misanthropes.

  I have often wondered what attracts your kind myself: people whose goal
  it is to provoke other people.  I respond to your attempts to provoke you.

| Yes, the measure of a person is the body of his Usenet postings.

  That is not what I said, but it is very amusing that you think so.

> You have to be a terminal basket case to enter into this kind of game to

| I know you are, but what am I?

  Well, we all know that you attacked me out of nowhere, to provoke me and,
  in your inimitable lunacy, expect me to dance.  Do you believe that anyone
  does not realize that something is seriously wrong with you by now?

| Now, if you really are a visiting alien, which I'm beginning to suspect
| for real, then the egomania engendered by your giant alien brain will
| compel you to post a reply.

  *laugh*  You are not even sufficiently well versed in logic to understand
  what an idiot you look like when you do not understand that posting a
  reply can have so many other reasons.  Really, Len, take a remedial course
  in logic and thinking skills.

| >   So have no sympathy
| Your sociopathic tendencies are already well known.

  Some people see others as they see themselves.

| Poppycock. You want me to self-destruct. That is ipso facto concern.

  No, it is the absence of concern.  But please make up your mind.  If I
  were a sociopath, I would not have concern for you, yet you desperately
  want me to have concern for you.  This is why you think that labeling me
  a "sociopath" would hurt.  But I do not care what you try to do to hurt
  me, as the only consequence I care about is that people see what you are
  willing to do.  And calling someone a sociopath reflects back on you.

| I am beginning to think you are actually so incredibly unconscious that
| you fail to understand what you are doing.

  I am happy that I have finally got to you and wiped that moronic grin off
  your stupid face.  There is yet hope for you.  /Think/, monkey, /think/!

  As for being unconscious of what you are doing, you are apparently not
  quite aware that you taunt and try to provoke and harrass people.  What
  does that say about you?  What does it say about you when you /sulk/ in
  return for being exposed as the really evil person you have posted lots
  of articles to prove that you are?  Who do you think you are kidding?
