Yeah: like the difference between being a good German and being a Nazi.
Thanks for clearing up the issue for me.

You advocate killing people because of their beliefs, without reference to
their actions.

I can't think of any human behaviour more quintessentially anti-extropian
than that. Or more reprehensible, for that matter.

Again, thank you for clearing up my last remaining misconceptions about
you -- that you might be a civilized human being with whom it was worth
engaging in intellectual debate. I don't run a killfile, but if I did, you'd
be in it.
