You have been sneering, snide, smug, supercilious, contemptuous, dismissive, and generally self-righteous and absolutistically and unreflectively self-certain towards both me and my positions - just like extremists would be. You and the droogies that I named engaged in a pack assault upon me when I had the temerity and gall to challenge your totalitarian thought-hegemony enforcement on this list - just like a herd of extremist sheeple would - resulting in the list consensus decision that you create another list within which to proselytize and propagandize each other, and mutually sing to the approving choir. The shoe fits, and whether or not you have the prerequisite honesty and integrity to admit it to yourself or others, you h!
ave been styling it, until the exi-freedom banishment, for some time now.

You seem to have this constitutional incapacity to tell the truth, Joe,
a classic sign of an extremist, since it was I who created the
exi-freedom list at egroups on my own initiative and offered it to the
extropians list as an alternative forum so as to not incite the frothful
and fevered allergic reaction of extremist freedomphobes such as
yourself, your statement here, as I have told you on the several
occasions you have stated it here, is an out and out lie. Another
classic sign of an extremist is when someone goes into spastic rants,
mischaracterizing their opponents positions, and demanding they be
removed (by exile or firing squad does not seem to matter much to them).
I and others have stated on many occasions our agreement with policies
of keeping guns out of the hands of individuals who have been proven
incapable of respecting their fellow humans, we do however have
legitimate concerns about how such policies are implemented by
governments due to the cases of abuse and malfeasance which have occured
in the past, so your statements that we want to give everybody guns, is
again an out and out lie and you know it is.

I hope at least you seek help with your pathological lying.
