I certainly have no intention of wasting my time debunking every nonsensical word from every ignorant amateur who shows up here with pretensions to educate the educated.

Long winded? Now, I am hurt. In the post the self-aggrandizing ignorant rants against, I presented an hypothesis and a falsifiable experiment. It took me all of 4 sentences to do so.

The self-aggrandizing ignorant wrote a ream more in the same thread without contributing anything and with no reasonable expectation to benefit anyone except himself. After all, Jim even contributed his own amusement.
