I'm going to pretend you didn't just now so egregiously underestimate
both the acumen and the tenacity of those whom you don't know, for
any other response would lead inexorably to ratholes so tortuous as to

For your own personal benefit, however, you might in the future take
some care to avoid repeating that particular stultiloquy. :-)
