Well, that's one way to end a conversation. Sorry you couldn't think of

I had previously stated that I was willing to stake $1000. But you
appear to be saying you'll only take 50/50 odds against nanotech. That
would make your position that we shouldn't work on it look very weak.
I'm still interested in betting with other people. I'd like to know
what odds they'd like. But there's obviously no grounds for respectful
communication from you, so no, I will not bet with you.
Now I'm hoping you'll be mature enough to preserve your stated intention
not to continue the conversation--it's annoying when abusive and
foulmouthed people get the last word.
