Sorry. Probably you're going to claim that
that wasn't clear. Lemme rephrase in the
language you've been using:

string.upper("""You really feel for some reason it's ok for
you to be as insulting as you like, eh?

I hope that's clearer.

Anyone who doesn't see what's so insulting
about accusing someone of refusing to define
his terms in a "debate" about mathematical
issues should request a clue. (Preferably
in private and not of me. I'm certain
Tim could explain what I find so totally
unacceptable about it for example, whether
he feels the same way or not.)

It's certainly possible that I failed to give 
some definition when asked because I didn't 
notice the request buried in the rest of this
stuff. Which is why I've asked him to clarify
when I did this. Repeatedly.
