I appreciate the "style" whit whom you wrote your post about what you
call a "controversy with Stewart". But apparently you seems to have
forget the main raison of this "controversy", or the "origin" of the
"controversy". The "controversy" was originated by the absolutely
UNACCEPTABLE behavior whit whom this man, "Stewart" is used to
contribute to this list, and I mean his AGGRESSIVITY, POMPOSITY an
INCIVILITY and IMPOLITENESS. The large majority of the contributors are
REALLY TIRED of him.
That's the point you lost, in my humble opinion

I have two observations about this .
First, you say of his interest in his own family history that "he tries
to HIDE it and LIE that he's only interested in how MEDIAEVAL FOLKS
relate to each other." But that is not at all what he said. He said
that his interest in his own genealogy is slight or, as you yourself
quote him, it is "vanishingly little". This controversy is taking place
in a context which supplies a great deal of evidence that what he has
said is true. The archives of this list contain postings by Stewart
which show a remarkably broad acquaintance with scholarly literature on
medieval topics in a variety of languages, a fact which would be
inexplicable if his interests were other than those he describes.
My second point, Hines, concerns an attitude you have expressed several
times in this debate and many times in past disputes on this list. You
say that you are delighted by the pain that you imagine Stewart is
experiencing. Anyone who takes pleasure in the pain of another human
being is evil. If you mean what you have been saying, you are evil.
If anyone disagrees with the major premise, I certainly am willing to
debate the point. Hines can, of course, rebut the minor premise by
repudiating the sentiment that I have attributed to him.
