Cavil all you want, Tim.  You're simply backfilling to cover your
snippage of the context information necessary to know what is going on.

If and when boycottnovell.com gets taken down by the University, then you
will be shown t be right.  At present, I think you simply engaged in
malicious snippage in the service of your obsession with Roy.

Things past redress and now with me past care.
