Uh -- Oh <g>-- but I think I _do_ understand you, Kal. You forget what's going on here. I am that public you work passionately to convince regarding the validity of your position. I am the individual that you are reporting to. I am the person that you want to maintain credibility with. I'm in a position to provide you with valuable feed back, and even more valuble support, and I'm reporting back to you that half baked proclamations with a woo woo sound track (yay _or_ nay) don't get it any more. I'm informing you that everyone understands your use of easy to demolish straw examples in your expos=E9s to demonstrate that the whole FIELD is bunk, stuff, and nonsense. I'm letting you know that your campaign _is_ ineffective, insulting, and works as an impediment to your honorable journalistic success. >There are no "emotional high ground" games going on here. If you >wish to play any, then do so without me. What is going on, >however, is a sincere quest for the truth. . . .As sincere as professional wrestling, and certainly approached by you the same way. The rational aren't sucked in. "Quest for truth," indeed -- please. I snort derisively. >You, sir, in your emails to and about me, including your literal >poetry about me over the past year that you have published on >the web, (please feel free to make up a posting of ALL your >links discussing me that you have ever written!) No need Kal -- it's there regardless! The interested reader can peruse at her leisure. >seem unable of >divesting your emotional feelings from the intellectual >arguments and case logic that you purportedly advocate. . . . And which _you_ have certainly _not_ provided, in any shape, way, manner, or discernible form. . . >Since I >do not seem able to distinguish between the two when reading >your writings, then I feel that further correspondence is >pointless. And you are probably correct -- except I am loath to let _yours_ be the final word on it! >Therefore, I am discontinuing it, until if and when the time >comes that you are able to email me or post your point(s) minus >the severe emotionalism and ad hominems you presently include. I see them as honest and meaningful expressions of frustration and disappointment that you front for agendas wallowing in the bottom stirring dross of the _easily_ contested. I resent that you don't use your position, experience, and talent to perform REAL investigations on _substantive_ issues. I resent that you are talented enough to draw the concerned anf perplexed into your prevaricating and _misleading_ camp. I resent your theme, method, and slap-dash-Persian-bazaar approach, sir. I don't think this qualifies as "severe emotionalism and ad hominems," but I'm content to let our readers be the judge. >And oh yes, sir, also omitting data and charges for which you >have no evidence, would also be desirable. This is just a situation report from the field, Kal -- your public talking back to you. I'd take a lesson, were it me. >When you do this, I will be extremely happy to read an email >from you and finally be able to answer to your issues and >points, because I will at last have understood them! I think we both appreciate the full import of both issues and points, Kal. But I struggle free of your scales, innuendo, and darkness. I retreat from your smothering lack of understanding, your ambushed conclusions, and your apparent lack of journalistic integrity. >Feel free >to make this as wide a public issue as you like. I welcome close >scutiny of your postings and written behavior. I'm all for that <g>. Given the insulting provocation of your assertions, I think _my_ behavior is admirable. >I will not waste my time going through your past writings, as >you curiously recommended, It's what _you_ would recommend to _me_, sir, if you could truly stand behind your shallow proclamations; but you _know_ that they are blown away in the first small breeze of critical evaluation, so you don't suggest it. >because having been the subject of >some of them in often less than flattering terms, why should I >re-read charges and claims that are patently false? I'm your reading public, Kal. True or false - they are based on _your_ track record and subject to change based on _your_ performance (or lack of same). Do something of journalistic integrity, and I'll be the _first_ to sing your praises. Continue as you are, and I will also continue to critically string my guitar with your smoke and mirror innards. >I don't think you would waste your time on them either. On the contrary, I would take them point for point, as I have _been_ doing, and not snip away the portions that are hard to argue, as you did with all the preamble to _this_ post. >Looking forward to your writing and publishing, for everyone to >see, your complete list of writings about me, and also, those >final emails that are minus the unprofesional verbiage. . . .Nonsense, you just need to learn to take valid criticism better.
