justified in order to illuminate what I believed was
the origin and nature of your accusations, not just
because I wanted to be nasty or evasive. Just a couple
of days ago this is what you said to Russell Wallace
without any provocation at all in my opinion:

"You sir are a coward." 

And there are many, many other examples. So many that
I couldn't begin to locate them all.
