Your constant and repeated accusations that any questioning of you is 
deliberate lying and innuendo (innuendo of what, I wonder?) is getting 
tiresome. You did this to me, accusing me of deliberate lying, and now 
you're doing the same to Steve.

Just because people question the (alleged) facts as you report it doesn't 
mean they're deliberately trying to mislead others. Hasn't it occurred to 
you that perhaps we're not deliberately lying to make you look bad but 
actually think you are mistaken? A difference of opinion is not evidence 
that people are lying.

For somebody who fancies himself a writer teaching beginners to 
programming, your communication skills leave something to be desired. I 
hope your book is better than your posts, because from what I have seen 
your writing in this newsgroup is frequently sloppy and hard to 
understand, you tend to use terms in non-standard ways and then take any 
misunderstandings as a personal affront, and if anyone questions what you 
say, you're likely bristle and start looking for a fight.

I don't know what your problem is, but I wish you'd deal with it in 
private and stop dumping it on the rest of us. You're a smart fellow who 
brings much of value to the community, but dealing with your posts is 
becoming more trouble than they're worth.
