Or perhaps he's just objecting to you putting words in the collective
mouths of everyone here.
It's funny, you know. You go on about morality while consistently
displaying almost total disregard for it.

You persist in ascribing dark motives and evil conspiracies to Richard
with neither proof nor reason to back your statements. This appears to
be a feeble attempt to suck another poor soul into your web of delusions.
But I agree... don't piss Richard off. He's a nice guy, by and large,
and doesn't deserve it. I do invite the OP to check a few posts from
you and Richard and make his own mind up about that however.

Actually, there's this 'freedom of speech' thing that a number of people
subscribe to. You must be familiar with it eddie, since you exercise
that freedom to excess.

No, because it is not relevant in this newsgroup. You've had that
explained to you on far too many occasions for me to keep track of, yet
you persist in not understanding. This leads to the inescapable
conclusion that you are incapable of truly rational thought.
How sad it is to be in your late 50s and losing your mind. I pity you
