I have already tangled with Alexis in a newsgroup, and for much more
innocuous statements than I have made on this list, which he did not begin
to understand, he was far more insulting to me than anyone has been here,
calling me, among many other gems, "a blithering idiot."

When I respond to personal attacks, it is based on the optimism that my
response has a reasonable chance of playing a positive role in cleaning up
the mess.  But with Alexis, I am already mostly convinced that he is beyond
my power to do much about.
It does not surprise me to learn that he has been involved on this list
before.  I can still see his spirit around.  It also does not surprise me to
hear that his politics is of the far left.  Those who believe in extreme
egalitarianism are notorious for how they regard those who dare to make
comparisons as inferior.
