P.S. Every time you strip out the names of the people that you quote, I
have found your practice disrespectful. I don't *know* who wrote
the quote you make above. Therefore, I do not know whose reputation
has improved in my eyes, if only, because they share my opinion
regarding you. Please retain the names of the people you quote.
