My dear Gato:

I trully enjoyed reading this diatribe of nonsense from you and take equal
enjoyment responding to it.

This is an outrage - Roberto you have no idea what freedom of expression
is .. I shall be specific in my comment as it respects your next

This I feel aduquately sums up your position.  It is no different then
that of Hitlers.  Hitler was well know for supporting freedom of
expression - much like yourself - he supported freedom of expression only
for those people he agreed with or who's critism was acceptable.

That's Roberto is not freedom of expression because true freedom is when
you support someones right to say something even though you may strongly
disagree with it.

You have failed Roberto - there is no one here anymore of value - and you
are to blame for that, as is the NC and your alternate.  You have poisoned
the river and now there's no where to swim.
