You may have noticed, Tilman, that Gerry has included a post of mine also on
his page. If you read it, you will see that it is barely insulting towards
him and--in fact--is directed at Deana and her quarrel with Gerry, telling
her that I think the whole thing (her side of it and his) is silly.

I'm curious whether you find that post of mine to be "similar, a parallel to
OSA methods" and, if so, how?

I don't know whether Gerry's intention is to compare the people he quotes to
OSA and, frankly, I don't care. I do think though it's, at the very least,
*weird* that anyone would go to the effort he's gone to collect these posts
and put them up on a web page.

Don't you?
