    I have been complaining about the word twisting and slander that goes on
here, and people have asked for examples. Ken Malkin has kindly provided me
with an excellent example of the kind of message that appears here that
keeps away those who many of you claim you want to see here:

    All I have ever claimed is that I give some technical help to Wheaton,
and I am on the Board of Directors of the New York Lodge. Which qualifies as
"protestations of importance"?

    Can you quote a single mention I have given of importance, other than
that of giving them technical advice on their Internet service? Note that I
put myself below Eldon Tucker in importance (as is correct), since he does
far more technical support there than I do.

   I do not underestimate the power of the Internet. But neither do I

    No. When did you stop beating your wife?
