Actually, I was assuming that you did _not_ mean the apparent outrageous
hararguing of _me_ for your differences on politics with the USA Federal
government. I was assuming that either it was an unfortunate slip that
would soon be rectified, or that some deranged person was posting from
your account. Fortunately, the latter is still possible.
Here's a clue: You can find people in Dublin whose job it is to listen
patiently and politely while you complain about (your characterisation
of) USA foreign policy as if they crafted it themselves. But I, alas,
am not paid for that. I am not Dubya's envoy to ILUG, the Republic of
Ireland, or anywhere else.
If you have the nerve -- and lack of courtesy -- to lecture me
personally over what you claim those incompetents in Washington have
done, I am very likely to tell you to bugger off. And you will richly
