Bummer. You're clearly not intelligent enough to see the advantages of
acting ethically and expecting others to do the same.

I'm also sorry that you don't recognize that *banging on the door and then
replicating 1000 times to bang on all of the windows too* is not only
UnFriendly but Stupid.

Ah well, maybe the peer pressure when we convert all of the intelligent
people will convince you. We will attempt not to bother you again except
when it is unavoidable like you're hanging out in a public forum.
