Ah, name calling. The last resort of the inarticulate. But really
"brat"? Is that the best you can do?


It's all you deserve... prattle on, dear boy. Unleash the beast. Do
your damnedest.

Mighty Joe Pluta: self-appointed defender of what exactly? It's not
as if your append was intended for me. You are well aware of how
little value I place on your opinion.
Simon, you place little value on anyone's opinion but your own
<laughing!>. No, I just want to make sure that your self-serving
statements along the lines of "it's NOT unprofessional to be a total
jackass" don't go unchallenged. Since David tolerates your bad-boy
tactics the best I can do is speak up once in a while.

I should have known better than to question stupidity in front of
people who obviously worship it. The nation that gave supreme
executive power to George Wanker--one of the most stupid men on the
planet. Not once but TWICE! Now that's stupid.
Ah, here we go. Taking shots at America. How cliche <laughing>. I
won't even begin to go into the hypocrisy that represents when you spend
so much time on a board running in America. You would do well in
Hollywood, Simon.

Condescension however is a different matter. The thing I like most
about the English language is a given word has so many shades of
meaning. I'll take the meaning as "Affability to one's
inferiors" (from the Shorter Oxford published 1973). I don't think I
am affable but I thank you for the praise.

There isn't a person on this list inferior to you, Simon. They may not
know as much about the arcane world of System i, but they're definitely
not inferior to you. You've proven that in spades in this post.

Anyway, enough. Respond, don't, it's all the same to me. I won't
extend this thread anymore - you've done enough all by yourself. Rest
assured, though, that any time you call someone stupid in public, I will
publicly point out what an ass you are.

Just because someone ought to do it.
