You might even have had a point had I not already demonstrated his idiocy and ignorance many times over.

It's not like I owe you infinite amounts of my time. I don't owe you anything, and you have no right to demand anything from me.

Since you are unable to recognize substantive arguments, which I have already supplied aplenty, and since you are yourself clearly a self-aggrandizing ignorant, I am going to add you to my twit-filter. Pretending I have any obligation to comply with your idiotic demands when you have already proved it would be a complete waste of my time is not something I am wont to do.

The fact that I won't be replying directly to anything you write implies nothing about the quality of whatever nonsense you might choose to post.

Yes, apparently, I have you confused with the idiot who uses a signature 8 lines high that includes the text: "The experts in large scale distributed OO systems design and implementation."

If that is not you, I apologize. However, the person, who includes that signature, loudly self-proclaims expertise. He is also stupid and ignorant of the most fundamental knowledge required for systems design and implementation. Hence, the observation that he is a self-aggrandizing ignorant.

   I note that you have still failed to

I left very clear trail markers about where Mr. Martin demonstrated his ignorance, his stupidity, his sloppy thinking etc. when I provided the substantive arguments to back the observations.

I can only assume you are just as ignorant of what a data model is as is Mr. Martin. I can only assume you lack the cognitive ability to recognize gibberish, like the gibberish Mr. Martin writes so frequently, even after someone explains it to you.

You leave me no choice but to conclude that you are too stupid and too ignorant to understand the many substantive arguments already given.

I have no interest in repeating myself or in appointing myself your errand boy. Go to google groups and look it up for yourself.

Indeed, that's what many of my colleagues have told me.

I haven't demonstrated any foundation that you were intelligent enough or knowledgeable enough to recognize. That's not the same as not having demonstrated it. If you are unwilling to meet me half-way, that's your problem and not mine.

You can project whatever you want onto me. I have little need for armchair psychobabble.
