You guys are just so phony!

So I did go to DejaNews again and did the search you suggested -- for 2
years! Nothing! 

There was some not very interesting discussion about cotton, that's all I
could find... And you mean you discussed Johannessen's work seriously
_without_ mentioning Johannessen? How's this for a non sequitur?!

This is the kind of know-it-alls I have to deal with...

Your basic incompetence is evident even from the fact that it would have
taken you only a few minutes to do this search yourself -- instead of
making a complete fool of yourself...

Holiday greetings,
