With that and your clear disregard for practical reality beyond to push your
own polarizing agendas and POV, I will bow out, but I would like an apology
from you which I don't expect shall be forthcoming.

Equating my point that, "If people leave virtual

to put 2 and 2 together, and the subject should not be surprised or upset
when this happens," to "Obviously, you're saying the same thing as women
deserved to be raped for dressing in sexy apparel," is filthy and
No, it's a quite valid analogy. Stop blaming the victim.

If you posted with the same handle hypothetically as "Jayjg" and said,
"Richmond ROCKS! So does Temple Such and Such, and I like eating Salmon!" on
some message board or blog comment, and someone Googles your name, and
starts seeing Easter Eggs all over, it's not Wikipedia's job to enforce a

has nothing to do with you, don't say squat about who you are, what you do
for a living, where you live, and be mindful if you edit articles related to
you and yours to play fairly and by the rules, to not piss off people and
get them searching for you. That's what I said.
And what makes you think that wasn't done? Oh, wait, I forgot, you're

What, so you can get the last rant in? Hardly. Your heartless victim
blaming mentality, built on equal parts prejudice and ignorance,
deserved a response.
