    This discussion is taking a very strange turn by GregR's mail. He is telling
    George to "move on" and - as I understand it - not to assault "the rest of
    us bystander's sensibilities".
    Gentlemen,
    
    have I missed something there? Who was it that made everybody else a witness
    to an attack on somebody else's integrity? Thereby assaulting at least my
    sensibilities as a bystander. That wasn't George, if I am not completely
    illiterate. Now if Peter Fogg's initial mail wasn't meant as an attack, one
    would expect a response like: "Sorry, I didn't think you would consider that
    as an insult, I didn't mean it that way." Did that happen? Not that I can
    remember. Instead Peter Fogg tried to show to the rest of us "sensible
    bystanders" that every he wrote about George is true. Which can only mean:
    "If he feels insulted, that's just what I intended."
    
    And when somebody - in this case me - tries to point out that Peter Fogg's
    criticism has passed a line that should not be passed - he is denigrated as
    well: "faulty logic" and "gallery" being the particular attributes aimed at
    me. Now I've heard worse and will certainly hear more in the future, so I
    don't particularly care - apart from the fact that I will not respond to
    Peter Fogg's off-list requests in the future. But the point is: Peter Fogg
    is obviously not willing to retract one single word or step.
    
    Now George hits back. At that point Greg steps in and says: "Move on". But
    that's telling the one who's been slandered that he should shut up and not
    complain; that's telling the victim that he's the culprit. That's not my
    idea of the right moral position, not in the real world and not in a
    discussion group.
    
    Now I will move on, if everybody else does.
    
    Wolfgang

    George:
    
    Your posts to this list are often filled with navigational wisdom (and
    occasional wit as well), but in this case you come off as nothing more
    than a pompous ass. So please give it a rest and just move on - this is
    definitely not worth the wasted bandwidth, not to mention the assault
    on the rest of us bystander's sensibilities.
    
    Hmm... I wonder if "assault" is actionable too...  ;-)
