Will, you do a fine job of misrepresenting yourself. You need no help from me. You really ought to leave off of your bellyaching about how persecuted you are. Not only does it sound pathetic, but it is utterly at odds with your otherwise aggressive behavior.

In other words, you continue to act like a complete prick toward people whom you view as apostates, and you have no compunction about doing so. Your characterization of me
as a hardened apostate is completely farcical, as Don Bradley will happily attest, even if he will, on the other hand, forgive you for acting like a slimeball toward him.
What it takes to assess the validity of your findings is exposure to them in a complete and coherent form, preferably in an edited publication. Since thus far no "hardened apostate" (as defined according to your whim of the moment) has had that opportunity, I have no idea what you are whining about, other than to continue your pity party when it comes to your entirely deserved unpopularity around here.

Yes, we are well familiar with your mantras. How could we forget?

As we well understand.

We'll see. Maybe some will. Maybe others will not. And maybe you'll be surprised to find who falls into which camp. It could very well be that the distribution will defy your prejudices.
