Getting a long delay in an answer is useful intelligence, and an
untruthful answer, recorded on the archives, is also useful if it ever
comes out that he was (once again) lying through his teeth.

While I admit I participated in baiting him, it was merely providing him
with the rope he hung himself with (once again), despite my best efforts
in trying to caution him against his folly. This time, not only did he
spam and flame the list (once again), but we documented him lying and
being hypocritical (and continued in this behavior after it was pointed
out to him, which is highly irrational), such that I think that its
rather clear to all and sundry that Mr Joe Dees is a troll, an extremist
with significant problems restraining himself verbally and a lack of
connection to reality, and a lack of ability to tell the truth, who sees
himself as a martyr of some sort, who will appoint himself as list
crusader and defender of the faith (despite being the one who was
previously kicked off the list, while I was not, contrary to his claims,
and despite nobody I know of asking him to do so).

Despite my best efforts of encouragement, list members insist on talking
about that dreaded subject on this list. I won't stoop to the rude and
obnoxious methods Mr. Dees engages in, being the libertarian that I am.
It seems to me that the market is speaking. Is anyone hearing?
