I don't think he's being plonked for not understanding computational
theory.  He's being plonked for resorting to name calling on his second
post!  If he was a smart computer scientist type, then engaging in a
discussion about the theoretical aspects of his algorithm would have
been welcomed by him, because that's what science is all about.  But he
failed that early on.

Thanks to everyone in this part of the thread for turning this
ridiculous farce into a really educational discussion on the theory of
information compression.  Too bad the OP has tuned out a long time ago.
