I never claimed to despise anyone. You should keep your words out of my 
And if I'm "getting paid" to post here do explain the people who post 10x 
as much as I do. Are they getting paid?

Another baseless conclusion.

Tone and intent aren't easily attained in a usenet post but I'm surprised 
that anyone would interpret my posts this way. I wouldn't say that I made 
Rasker look stupid and it clearly wasn't my intent to do any such thing. 
Rasker is one of the more reasonable posters here IMO. If he gets a flat 
tire while driving home from work he'll try to find a way to blame Window 
for it but otherwise I have absolutely nothing againt him and have had some 
decent conversations with him. It's not Richard - but rather the entire 
test methodology of saving the tests to a floppy, handing in the floppy and 
then having someone (his wife) copy the file contents to a server that's 
stupid. In summary: Test procedure stupid. Richard not stupid.

> Richard has no authority at the

It's his wife's class that was tested. I'm working on the presumption that 
she has some authority over her own classroom.

Only in your misinterpretation of the events.

Then it would become a job. What's the fun in that.

>I notice you did not deny getting paid, why not?

Because it's so ludicrous that it's not worth denying.

> This is usenet. There is no penalty for lying here,
> it won't matter if you lie or tell the truth.

It sounds like you're trying to justify lying. Usenet or not, there is 
still a moral component to knowing telling lies.
