Apparently that's the wrong way to do it, then.  If you want to follow a
discussion or thread, I suggest that you read it from start to finish and you
will find that you become less confused.

In the specific case that you refer to, there was nothing left to "find".  I
initially refuted his un-founded assumption with general statements and
subsequently presented documented and completely reliable evidence directly.

Lonnie's response was to slink off.  Having given him the benefit of the
doubt initially by assuming that he would correct any mis-perceptions that
he had somehow acquired once they were properly pointed out, I was sadly
disappointed when he opted instead to disappear and (apparently) hope that
everyone would just forget when and if he dared to raise his head again.

His actions revealed what I had assumed to be a min-understanding on his part
to actually be a completely unsubstantiated lie.  Which by definition makes him
a liar and completely untrustworthy with regard to any past or future
statements that he may make or have made.

Again, you really should attempt to follow mailing list and newsgroup threads
in order, from start to finish, if you wish to be able to understand the
subject matter under discussion.  You will have a much better understanding of
what is going on if you do so.
