Martin: I'm, among many other things, a professional writer. The "of course"
is what is called a "stylistic habit" and has no other motivation. I think
it would help if you were not so totally negative in your perception of
everything I say and do.

How "perceived by Liesel" she has made it clear that she has filtered both
Chuck and myself...so what we say is hardly anything we expect her to read.

This is entirely your personal perception Martin, and I think "sulky" is a
word one uses to children and I am probably your senior.

They're not "ideas" Martin they are facts!

If you'd been on the list at that time, you'd know that I started out by
being very considerate indeed. I dropped the subject entirely and didn't
even refer to it. It was only when CWL unavoidably came up in a context
divorced from his pederasty and I disagreed with him on some philosophical
matters, that Liesel "went off like a rocket". How about Liesel being
considerate of my feelings? Eh?

It's far too late for that Martin, I will, if I can, have no further
contact with her at all. I don't really like dealing with people who call
you names when you disagree with them.
I am nobody's enemy Martin.
