That wasn't me.  I could make some insulting references to failings of
yours that resulted in this mistake on your part, but I really do not
think that's necessary.  It is much more fun to just watch you

By the way, it may not invalidate the other lines of text, but it does
rather effectively eclipse them.

The other lines of text are essentially invalidated by their own lack of
reasoned argumentation, anyway.

Again, that wasn't me.

Still wasn't me.

Not only was it not me to whom you replied here, but I did not claim that
"ls-F" is not "tcsh".  Read *my* actual reply for the explanation of
where you went flying off into never-never-right-land on that one.

How can you take note of the content of his signature block enough to
comment on it like that without noticing it's nothing like my own
signature block?  Mine is below.  Compare, and try to remember that you
look like an asshole to more than one person here.

Nope -- not me this time, either.

I wonder if Sterling Camden will offer a "you're welcome" to your hostile
