51. How Have I Exaggerated? How Have I Misinterpreted?
You misquoted and exaggerated, and then put in your own interpretation.

We'll have to disagree, then. I saw your thread about how you were going to check in once-a-day because you were concerned about being killed. I saw your thread about the Pentagon Papers.

Feel free to quote the original material, if you are so inclined. I'd be very interested to see how I'm supposedly exaggerating or misinterpreting your positions.

I'd also be interested in knowing, for the record, whether you believe this is deliberate malice by Diebold. I'd also be interested in knowing, for the record, whether you believe there is a conspiracy to rig votes.

I would be amazed and impressed if you gave me a straight answer on this.

Back to the ISSUE: Diebold rebuttals -- why do you keep hijacking this thread, which is about the Diebold rebuttals, trying to talk about other things?

Because last I checked, talking about matters related to a thread topic was still allowed here. (Last I checked, even talking about matters UNrelated to a thread topic was still allowed here, too.)

Start your own thread about your issues with "Bev Harris" if you want. This thread is about the Diebold issues.

You appear to be quite fond of doing this, but please don't tell me what to do. I'm not really interested in starting a thread on this. I'm happy to continue the various discussions in this thread, however.

What I do see here, when you are on topic, is this:
You agree that Diebold has acted negligently.
You agree that Diebold's answers aren't adequate.
You agree that making a statement that they used Windows exactly as is, off the shelf, when actually they made significant modifications, is "suspicious."
We're getting there.

Again, I would note that few if any people on the "skeptic" side that I am aware of would dispute any of the above. The controversy arises more from the bolder claims that some have made, and also from the arguably overhyped nature of this issue.
