[EM] Take a number & get in line.

I'm not complaining, and I'm not saying that all the letters are hostile,
but recently there have been quite a few letters questioning my criteria
or (from Blake) going on at great length about my character & sanity,
evidently a very important issue to Blake.
You might say that Blake is so far off-topic as to not deserve an
answer, and that's true. But because he's been posting so voluminously
& furiously, repeating the same type of mis-quotes so many times,
that I'm going to reply once more, & include a summary & clarification
of his theme.
Such a series of long rants about another member of the list is
unprecedented here. For instance, if I criticize someone, it's in
a letter about voting systems. I don't post a series of long letters
about a person. I suppose I should take it as a sort of flattery that
Blake considers me important enough to post all those long letters
Evidently something has really upset Blake, and it's something having to do
with me. I won't try to speculate what it is, but it's something important
enough to him to make him dig through archives of 5 years
ago in order to make his case--about something with no relevance to
EM's voting systems topic.
Of course it's ridiculously off-topic, and I won't keep replying after
I post my next reply & summary.
All this has occurred right at a time when I have lots of other things
that have to be done, and so I haven't had time to answer the letters
That I haven't answered those letters yet doesn't mean that I'm not
going to. Obviously there isn't time to take part in all 4 discussions
at the same time, so I'll do them one at a time, starting with the
briefest & most relevant, and ending with the longest & least relevant.
In other words, the order will be: Poll issues, Martin, Markus, Blake.
