REALLY? Does that work in ALL directions? Or just your preferred one?

No, I don't guess. But if "they" had the slightest reaction "they" are a bunch of stupid asses with no idea whatsoever of what the Usenet is and how people use it. then again, I doubt you can speak for them. And "multi-million dollar" is only a quality certificate in your imagination.

You're sick... No, a google search does NOT reveal that. YOU have chased that up. Don't give me the bullshit about your "google searches"!

I don't recall Ryan claiming anything other than being a beginner. That's fine by me and I'd guess just about anyone else. And I know a lot of people with a lot more than 3 years Oracle experience who contribute here a LOT less and lesser quality...

And you obliged by sending it to them, no? BTW, drop the "multi-million" this, "multi-billion" that crap: you're talking to an INTERNATIONAL group of adult professionals here. Not a bunch of easily impressible groupies. It's in bad taste to say the least. And it means exactly squat in terms of ANY technical credibility. Got it?

Bullshit! No company whatsoever does that for a "work-related" forum.

I doubt it. But your point is?...

Bullshit! So, now the "work-related" forum is no more?

I do recall you not having any such scruples or qualms when the "libel" target was another frequent contributor of this group... BTW, which lawyer books have you been reading? :D

That tells us all very clearly what your real motivations and intentions are.
And BTW: worst case of paranoia in quite a while...
