I too would love to respond to Avantguardian's Email by asking him how something can be absolutely positively 100% identical and radically different at exactly the same time, but unfortunately I cannot do so, as I mentioned before I have no originals of Mr. Avantguardian's posts to work with; so I must remain mute.
