That has been my argument. If Mr. Zero wants to spew his identity all
over the public arena, let him. If he doesn't, which is apparently how
he feels about his personal identity, then he has absolutely no right to
argue that I should meet a standard that he has no intention of
conforming to, and by his admitted example of his instructions to his
kids, has no intention of encouraging any other member of his family to.
As it stands, I already meet his standard far better than he does.
