I have apologized for my personal attacks on Mike. I realize that 
calling him names was wrong and only degraded my own reputation here on 
EM. So be it.

Having said that, I think I have the right to point out what Mike has 
said in the past and has never apologized for. Indeed, I see that even 
within the last few hours he has posted another message justifying his 
routine disrespectful replies to several participants here, including 
me. What is becoming abundantly clear is that Mike honestly believes 
that his own intellectual "superiority" justifies or excuses his 
appalling arogance and rudeness.

Suppose you were walking down the street minding your own business and 
you were assualted. You fight back, then the police come along and see 
two people fighting. What can they do but break it up and take your word 
against the other guy's as to who started it. But what if the other guy 
has a track record of assaulting others and you don't. Well, Mike 
clearly has a track record of routinely insulting others here, but I 
have never deliberately insulted anyone here on EM other than Mike.

Mike has posted lie after lie about me. Then he accuses me of posting 
lies about him, which I have never done. A few weeks ago he was caught 
red-handed in a bald-faced lie claiming that I had tried to falsely take 
credit for originating DMC/RAV. The archive shows clearly that he was 
completely wrong. Did he apologize? Of course not. He claimed it was 
jutst an "honest" mistake. Ya, right.

He's still claiming that I'm "hurt" because he "forced" me to remove his 
material from my website. That's two lies rolled into one. First, he had 
no right to demand that I remove anything from the site (not to mention 
that he has absolutely no way to "force" me to remove anything, of 
course). Second, I voluntarily removed most of his stuff because a lot 
of it was wrong, unimportant, or poorly explained (his bogus definition 
of CC is a classic example).

So my little mock award was an attempt to make a point. I insulted Mike 
by simply posting a sample of his arrogant garbage. What does it tell 
you when you can insult someone by simply quoting him?
