For the record, you're mistaken, I had zero opinion on this topic 
beyond trying to understand what the issues were.  I've gleaned a 
few useful insights (e.g., the abuse desk to the ISP that didn't
create the SWIPs).  

As for my "highly negative reaction", I actually thought your 
response comical - but you senselessly diluted your point trying
to be clever.  

I've heard your opinion, I'd like to continue to hear form other
folks as well..

Kind regards,
