I resent these statements about me.

As Mr. Small knows full well, I offered him an olive branch.  I wrote
him off list after my post encouraging him to elevate the level of
discourse, not to shut up.  My message can correctly be construed as
suggesting self-control, but not censorship.  I don't know what to call
the above statement other than a lie.  The gloves are off Mr. Small.

A couple of people who wrote me off list described you as a bully.
Trying to bully me on-list will not work.

One would think that someone so relativist would restrain himself from
the sort of flaming that has been posted on this list under his name.

I would just like to add that 'expressing strong opinions' is not always
an effort to promote dialogue:  it might just as easily be an effort to
bully others into conformity.  In this case, the so-called fascism is
all with the speaker and not with the defenders of public fora.

Cheers,
