For what it's worth, I have met Norm. In the past, we have shared an interest in Gaussian periods. We have never discussed set theory.
To the best of my knowledge, I haven't ever met george, and, if he is as repulsive in person as he is on Usenet, I hope I never do. I certainly have no intention of responding to his foul posts.
My experience on Usenet has been that, by and large, it is the cranks and trolls who resort to shouting, name-calling, and other rude behavior. Between george and Norm, who is displaying more crankish traits?
