This is not a rational debating topic: it is a paranoid rant. By 
phrasing your point, if you have a point, in these terms, you are 
accusing a large number of hard-working and serious people (such as 
my good self) of dishonesty.  I don't choose to listen to this 
garbage any more.

Congratulations. Your emails have now been promoted to the status of 
spam by my email filters.
