And people want me to apologise for things *I* have said to
"well-respected Wikipedians"? I am trying now to be less abrasive, but
it is a bit more difficult than you might expect since well-respected
Wikipedians continue to toss personal attacks at me as they did
(18/11/2004 [23:19:10]) <GerardM> do not be stupid
(18/11/2004 [23:19:17]) <node_ue> Excuse me?
(18/11/2004 [23:19:27]) <node_ue> Would you like me to paste this
conversation on the mailinglist?
(18/11/2004 [23:19:32]) <GerardM> it is a lame argument
(18/11/2004 [23:19:44]) <node_ue> Would you like to explain that?
(18/11/2004 [23:19:59]) <node_ue> Or are you going to just tell me my
argument is lame like you did before, and then never tell me why?
(18/11/2004 [23:20:25]) <GerardM> I do not have time at this moment,
what is difficult about that ?
(18/11/2004 [23:20:48]) <node_ue> Apparently you never have time,
because you never explain it, yet you always tell me my arguments are
(18/11/2004 [23:21:18]) <node_ue> I think you have plenty of time, but
you don't want to because you cannot support it, so you will just
stand behind a rock and tell me how lame my argument is while you
pretend to be too busy to have a rational discussion.
(18/11/2004 [23:21:21]) <GerardM> I am working on stuff, and do not
have the time to go on discussing things. We do not agree
And seriously, the last time we had a disagreement (that time it was
over e-mail), he told me my arguments were all lame, and told me I had
yet to explain my feelings about the issue when I had spent at least 2
very very very long non-hostile e-mails doing exactly that. When I
asked him to explain *why* they were lame, he did not respond and thus
our correspondence came to an end.
