> Picking through your Usenet rants is also irrelevant to our discussion.
I'm sorry, but you were recently asserting that my [impliedly personal]
"insults" were -=in=- what you are now choosing to refer to as my "Usenet
rants". Neat trick, declaring irrelevant the very thing I'd asked you
to please substantiate your public claim about.
> TBH it is not my job to correct your bad behavior.
To be honest, begging the question is a particularly bad habit,
especially when you're attempting small-time character assassination on
someone else, particularly someone who has just challenged you to
support your assertion, and whose question you've decided to duck. It
comes across as either illogical, hypocritical, or both.
And covering that sort of nervy misbehaviour with a tone of
moral sanctimoniousness is especially odious -- albeit locally popular
in my part of the globe. Are you _sure_ you're not from California? ;->
