Your assessment could not be further from the truth.

A point on which I shall not disagree, which is precisely why I did NOT include him in this discussion.

Certainly that is the reason you anonymously post to this newsgroup, the level of spam in your mailbox. Such a statement does not answer why you fail to 'sign' your work, valid email address or not. I state again such is the tactic of cowardice, a tactic for which you fail to provide an answer.

Clarity and brevity ... I must disagree with you on that point. You snipped and posted this from a post of mine:

The rest of the passage, not quoted by you, for 'brevity and clarity':

Of course, it is your right to
post in any newsgroup you wish, posting whatever you wish, to whomever asks any question whatsoever. And, it is my right to killfile your useless antics to prevent any further disruption of threads you, Mr. "Mark A", may choose to inflict.

Explain how your quote is clearer than my complete statement.

That thread was mentioned in response to your assertion your DB2 hewsgroup was being sabotaged by sensless posts and marketing hype. Your TPC-C post was, in essence, such marketing hype, and, as such, reeks of 'the pot caling the kettle black'. The thrust of this discussion was not the TPC-C post, but the tenor of the posts in THIS thread, starting with your shameless marketing of DB2 which provided absolutely no useful information to the original poster and continuing with your less-than-stellar excuses for attempting to disrupt this newsgroup with what appear to be personal and vindictive attacks based upon a skewed perception of the intent of two regular contributors to Try as you might to validate your logic such inane methods have no place outside of a kindergaten playroom.

Respond all you like to this; until you can answer for your inability or unwillingness to claim your 'work' as your own I shall not respond further.
