You're flat out lying Rahul. I never claimed that. You're a desperate, despicable, deleterious desperado indeed. Your mother should wash your mouth out with soap for claiming such things.


If true, such claims are irrelevant. Ad hominen attacks never address issues raised in argument. Ad hominen attacks are a mark of desperation denoting that you have no rational reply.

Did Rjack just admit that he himself has no rational arguments?

Indeed he did, probably without realising it. Sometimes, you've just got to laugh. :-)

His usual trick is never to give a complete systematic account of his thesis. You never get more than, say, 25% of it in a single post, and often that is so prolix as to be unreadable. I doubt he's ever given a systematic readable account of his idea in a post.

And if you ask him a reasonable pertinent question which he can't answer, he responds with abuse instead.

Ummm... "...abuse instead"?

On <Sat, 28 Mar 2009 13:40:34 -0700> Alan Mackenzie started with a
calculated ad hominem remark to Rjack:

"Please think about the dictum "don't be a dick".  Please also get out
a bit, socialise with people other than RMS and go for a reality check
on what GNU is."

On <Sat, 28 Mar 2009 16:25:12 -0500> Rjack replied in kind to Alan

"Now that you have repeatedly inferred that I'm a "dick" while
lecturing me on insulting people, why not go have a nice cup of coffee
and contemplate the meaning of 'don't be a hypocritical,
self-righteous prick'"?

My goodness Alan! You are self-righteous and hypocritical. Don't
want "abuse"? Then don't start abuse and then whine about retaliation.

1) Rjack doesn't start ad hominem abuse.

2) Rjack does (probably shouldn't) reply in kind.

I would remind you as I have Rahul, my NNTP server (Giganews) caches
over two years of searchable headers and messages to this group. Why
not try to keep your assertions accurate and free of hypocrisy?

Rjack :)
