I gave my source.  Have you contacted him?  Why are you accusing me of
failing to do something that I did?

Don't invent things that aren't there.  Yes, it's been a sociological
lesson.  No, I was not "trying to get a reaction".  The major sociological
lesson is the reaction that I _did_ get, which I did not expect, and
(quite frankly) didn't want -- still don't, for that matter.

As for me, I will post no more on this topic to questions@ as the subject
