I started with some earnest questions in order to understand your
position. You didn't answer them, but started playing on words and
accusing me and others of lying. You don't back up your claims, but
permanently ask others to back up theirs. When confronted with your
contradictions, you don't respond, but counter with new accusations
and unfounded claims.

I cannot change your behaviour. I'll just note that apparently you
don't want to take the chance to explain your pro-FDL position to
me and other readers. You could have said so right away. (I doubt
your childish denials and accusations will convince anyone to use
the FDL ...)

Actually I prefer to decide for myself whether or not to reply (if
you decide to send that message). I don't need your advice on this.
(But as per your request, I'm sending this reply to the list only,
not to your Reply-To address.)

Indeed I cannot go down to your level. My sense of logic and my
understanding of natural language prevent me from doing so.
