Tanel, you are running amok. You resorted to personal insults on a public forum and I don't want to continue in the same tone. The Borg comparison was actually the second thing that came to mind, because I didn't want to use the first one. It was just too harsh and, as opposed to you, I am trying to avoid insults. Let me just point out several things:

  • The post wasn't referring to you or your work, it was about the video by M. Bach.
  • Martin, who is also a member of oracle-l didn't respond.
  • You responded with an uncharacteristic fury which would have probably inspired Vivaldi, if he was alive. In your rage, you crossed the line of good taste and have attacked me personally.
  • You have no standing in the issue, since it's not about you.
  • Saying that one of somebody's works is useless is not a sign of disrespecting the person.

At this point, I have to thank you for propagating my article and comments to much wider audience that I could have done without you. If you think that the video is worth watching and that I am full of it, you are welcome to explain yourself. I am not going to play "and your mama wears boots" game, I am too old for that.
