Subject: RE: BS: The end of the world is nigh.
It looks to me like GUEST and Marty don't have enough to do if they spend their time counting up who posted how many times. I wasn't referring to the number of times Teribus has posted, but to the length of his posts. And as far as the number of times I've posted, note that that works out to about two posts a day. Not that much less than Teribus, but thoroughly understandable if you note that, granted I do write up some fairly long posts sometimes, many of my posts are one-liners   Terubus' posts tend to run on to 1,000 or more words, full of statistics and stuff that he's had to research (at least, he claims he has), so the actual time that goes into one of his posts is probably a lot more than mine. Since you have so much time on your hands and you seemed to be so interested in statistics, you might try downloading all of my posts and all of Teribus' posts, doing a total word count on both of us and then compare. That would give you a better indication of who spends more time doing what. Also, some of the things I post are cut-and-paste from the book I'm writing. Takes only a moment. And some of the things I write here qualify as first drafts for the book or for magazine articles. So many of my posts do double-duty. I make no apologies.

And Marty, of course you find me boring. You have to dismiss me. If you agreed with my assessment of you as a total person, your bitterness, nastiness, and your level of intellectual and emotional maturity, it would be a major blow to your sick little ego and you'd probably wind up in a corner curled up in the fetal position sucking your thumb.

Have a nice day.
