They are neither unfair, nor unbased accusation.

Glad you agree.  Claims that my postings are unfair and full of unbased
accusations was misguided.

Stop preaching on what not to do.  If you want to start exchanging insults
I can be extremely brutal.

Have understood long ago that I am unwelcome.  I do nothing unsolicited,
so if you want anything constructive, there should be some goodwill involved
as I have not seen much of it.  At least that has been my experience.
You can deny it, but I can discuss a list of individuals.  If they had not 
actually been members of TUG Committees, I would not have griped.

Thank you so very much
