Jerome,

If not, more than likely because it's such a childish exercise,
which either becomes you or it doesn't. Who can tell? Perhaps we
should vote on it with a show of hands.

Anyway, never one to shy away from childish exercises I'll stick
my hand up.  You'd have to be either a fool to not sense that
Klass was alluding to his previous comments (how good a joke,
and how funny they were is irrelevant)...either a fool, utterly
humourless or anxious for any opportunity to score points off
the guy, due to an underlying resentment over separate
longstanding issues, I suspect.

Clearly you appear more comfortable taking disagreements down to
a personal level.  So you'd be hard pushed to convince anyone
who knows that, other than a half-wit, that Klass's comments
constituted a 'death-threat'.

Curious for one who likes to parade as being 'tolerant of
ambiguity'. I see you've read Festinger. You should read him
again.

As you asked,

Rob
