### Lee, you wrote earlier that I am "parasitizing" the society, or
something of the sort, so don't give if you can't take it. Did you
notice that the first post I made on this wretched issue did not name

### I meant what I wrote. I cannot believe that you can advocate mass
ethnic cleansing and *really* think that this is just "causing people
to simply relocate in another country with no inconvenience". You are
veiling violent thoughts and motivations in soothing words.
