All extremists view anyone who does not approve of their actions and words as extremists; why should this extremist be different? It does not matter that his eyes and ears are closed now; his mind was closed long before - his loss, although since it is his own mind that he has lost, I doubt if he will be self-aware enough to miss it. He chose to be part of the problem, the off-topic gun garbage extropy list flood problem. Well, let him be; I shall continue to endeavor to solve it, and to be part of the solution - to attempt to stem the tide of unmitigated list irrelevancy by sticking my finger in the dike every time it leaks.
