I am only one "Atkins". There is also Brian Atkins here and,
occassionally, his wife Sabine. We are distinct and different

While I admit I have occassionaly got overwrought and succumbed
to the temptation to tell someone off, I have made a very real
effort to avoid such practice and to apologize when I lapse.

Again, if you think crying that I do the same thing excuses
others or makes the problem not a problem I think that your
reasoning is a bit flawed on this manner and secondly that you
are accusing me at a level that is not justified and that you
have not provided evidence for. Saying you "cannot believe.."
that others don't see things as you do is not evidence and does
not improve your position.

And, really, what does it matter anyway?
