This sarcasm is going to turn out to be symptomatic, I fear.

Mike Lorrey has written 18 posts in the last three days. I would
appreciate very much if you would back up your claim. I want to
see some examples in those 18 posts of

* vitriol
* never [sic] answering questions directly
* misquoting
* setting up straw men
* coming across as rude or bullying

I am committed to the truth. If you can find instances of those,
and they are, as you imply, quite unambiguous, I will join you
in your assertions. But if you cannot, then I would expect that
in the interests of fair play, you would admit that you had spoken
hastily, and retract your remarks.

It's very simple. Just back up your assertions.
