John, I was pretty sure it's coming to this.  You simply must stop calling 
people names and using combative argument structures here.    (02)

When you say: "Please give us a break and some posts with merit", who are 
you talking to?    (03)

Yourself?    (04)

The problem is this: you read things the way you want to read them, then 
you fire back.  You have attacked me personally enough times that it's 
enormously entertaining now. Particularly when I toss in a "bone" you like 
and you thank me for the post.  You simply don't understand that this is a 
forum where the issues Douglas Engelbart brought up are open for discussion 
-- reasoned discussion, not the name-calling diatribes you toss out.    (05)

I really wonder how members of your knowledge management tribe are going to 
appreciate finding out that their leader isn't capable of carrying on civil 
discourse in public places.    (06)

If you must put sentences here that embarrass the some of us in public, 
such as the reference you made to Kofi Annan, then I think it will be time 
to ask you to leave this forum once and forever. It's not that your 
underlying viewpoints are objectionable, for they are not. It's just your 
total lack of ability to put forth a civil response in an otherwise honest 
forum.    (07)
