i'm sure the world is full of perfectly personable whores who, for the 
most part, are normal people, have a place to live, have nice "toys", are 
fun to be around, throw barbecues on the weekends for their friends, etc.

despite your nonsensical accusations above, i in no way "viciously 
attacked" mr. sharp.  i simply pointed out what was painfully obvious to 
anyone, even those who had never met mr. sharp -- that is, that he is 
clearly willing to say whatever it takes to make a living, even if it
involves completely contradicting what he said in his previous business 
lifetime.

in short, he's a whore.  what's the problem here?

rday

p.s.  and, also despite the idiocy you wrote above, i never attacked, in 
general, "people that work for Microsoft."  i never made any reference to 
them.  nice try at a red herring, though.
