1) I did read them.

2) I fly off the handle.  Look in the mirror.

But since you don't seem able to cope with the concept that you could 
just possibly be wrong, and because, after having come back from an 
auto show, and now am going out for ballroom dancing and therefore have 
more to do on a Saturday night than argue with someone who seems unable 
to examine himself, I'll go away and let you feel like you've bullied 
me into submission.  

That'll give me time to decide if it's time to add only the third name 
I've ever put in a kill file since first found out I could do that back 
in 1987.

I'm sure you can find other people to be rude to and that should keep 
you quite occupied for a few more hours.

Have a good evening.
