Those messages in which replied to the complaints which you selected.

And:

Because otherwise a baseless complaint is left to stand. That's not called, justice. It's not charitable. And it's not right. If you want to keep involving yourself in such an utterly pointless discussion, then at least do so honestly, and fairly. If you quote them - then quote my responses, as well.

>I reject the accusation of carefully leaving out anything.

You left out what I had to say in reply. It's not an accusation so much as a statement of fact, with which you yourself agree.

Just be honest. You weren't in this, or the previous message. I just explained why, above.

But honestly, this is pointless. Nothing can come of this. You are defending baseless accusations and rude behavior, which are not unknown on Usenet. But you don't defend that. You should be on my side in this, clearly.

Again, as I said, this can go nowhere. I think it's boring. I think nothing can be added to it. Again, you're on your own. Received on Sat Feb 25 2006 - 22:25:32 CST
