Now you're really reaching.  I don't think anybody's
fooled by your excerpting tactic, so don't flatter
yourself into believing you're even halfway convincing.  I
think Don Brown's reading of the thread jives with my own
and that of those others who may have looked at it.  

Give it up.  You are among the least credible persons on
any of these discussion lists.  How's thepollingbooth.org
coming along?  What about your other project
cyberspaceassociation.org?  Got any more domains you wish
to give up..?
