No.  What happened was that while I was trying to give a report of what
was discussed during the Marina del Rey workshop during *my* presentation,
you kept on interrupting me even though other people in the audience were
trying to shut you up.

You were an embarassment even to the other Japanese in the room, who felt
obligated to apologize for your behavior.  Several of the foreign
attendees made up their minds there that you were an idiot.

Since you have no comprehension of civilized behavior, you should stay in
your lab, and not go to conferences where you embarass your fellow
countrymen.

Let me put this in the kind of rude language that you understand:

	Escape sequences suck.  They suck for the same reason that shoving
	Ohta's brain up a gnat's ass is like putting a BB in a boxcar.
