83. in self-defense
Edited on Sun Feb-11-07 01:11 PM by OnTheOtherHand
let me say that I've done a bunch of work on HR 811 off-board. I think I've spent more time on HR 811 than I have on pummelling the ghost.

Still, the ghost is taking up too much time, and I'm not sure what to do about it. The ghost has at least two other virtual domains in which he can cherish an honored semi-retirement surrounded (as far as I can tell) by people who only and always agree with him. If he insists on bringing his pseudoscience around here, there will be push-back. And I do think it matters, because if we can't look rationally at what has happened, might have happened, and hasn't happened, then it's hard to talk rationally about what to do next. I've seen so many DUers post things along the lines of 'TIA, I have no idea what your posts mean, but it always cheers me up to see them.' Sigh.

EDIT TO ADD: Whoops, that was sort of half of what I had to say. That's why I spend more time on the ghost than I think he deserves -- which is to concede your point. I accept your reproof.
