No one will attest to any such thing. Participating in a conversation,
particularly when the topic is brought up by another list member, is not the
same as inflicting one's private obsessions onto the list.

You're a case study, Joe. Keep up the good work!

Okay. So you're suffering from "messianic megalomania." Interesting. I
also note, above, that every position of yours is held with an "emotional,
irrational, and quasi-religious fervour." Any more self-revealing insults
