Hi "alex23".

Ad hominem attacks like you try above, just reflect on the one doing it.

Adding in some obviously false assertions just makes you look even worse.

And posting anonymously, well, that article's got it all.

Such attacks constitute noise and, except for how they reflect on you, only noise.

Cheers & hth.,
