OK very well. I claim to be so righteous and so right thinking as
to do exactly this, under these very limited circumstances: if any
person wishes to physically injury me or seriously kill me, I fearlessly
claim that that meme is wrong, regardless of the reasoning process
by which the meme was derived. Furthermore, I claim the right to
modify or destroy that meme, again regardless of how it came
about. I do not care how that meme came into existence, I
claim the right to modify or destroy it if I am able. spike

ps I must commend the current participants in the observations
and notes thread. We have waded several days into this difficult
topic and have managed to do so without attacking each other.
Well done! s
