Chip Salzenberg suggested I ought to set the record straight on this, so
I'll observe the quotes in the above are misleading. I did not use the phrase
"defamation of character" nor any semantic equivalent thereof.
OTOH, the intent of my threat certainly was that I would make Bruce look
like a fool and an asshole. I invite readers to judge for themselves
whether this would constitute defamation of character or not.
