For your throrough researching, comprehensive contemplation, and your eloquent delivery of kernels of truth (on which we snack, as we gaze on with amazement) in pursuit of the most relevant, scholarly, accurate and nuanced information. Tiamut 20:51, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

For your relentless struggle against intellectual dishonesty. Where many, including myself, have almost given up hope, you just keep going on, and on, and on... Targeman 18:39, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

That's right Mackan, Dcooper and Gwernol, or whatever your name is. I'm here to keep all you people honest. Nuts to your Palestinians, and nuts to you.

Oh now you want some DCooper? Now you want some? Who are you all of a sudden? Samuel Johnson my ass. The numb-nuts said "Hurlyburly." --140.247.88.64

G-Dett writes compellingly, but links to his UserPage show up in red because neither he nor anybody else has posted anything on this blank page.

From a contribution he made at [1] "In another context xxxxx has written, "If Michael Moore were to say George W. Bush is a bastard, NPOV does not demand we say 'His father was allegedly George Bush Sr., though Michael Moore claims he is a bastard.'" That was well said, xxxxx, and the same principle applies here. It is noteworthy when someone prominent says something demonstrably false about someone, but NPOV does not require that we treat an unsupported and unsupportable charge as somehow plausible".

Well done. I find myself enjoying your arguments more so than the articles. Am I wrong? <shug>
