While I thought this thread ended last night, in deleting all of yesterday's
messages this morning, I came across this unanswered one. As Ken called me
"sleazy or sloppy" and accused me of "misrepresentations," I don't want these ad
hominem attacks to go unanswered.


I was not quoting you. There are no quotation marks around the sentence you
backquoted. I was paraphrasing you with what were clearly my own words.

If you feel someone has mis-understood you, you have the prerogative of
correcting their misconception, *without* impugning their abilities, motives, or
-- especially -- their integrity.
