So you claim. Are you a legal expert?

- - Yes? Kindly let us see your legal credentials

- - No? Then on what basis do you make that claim? Is it the same basis, perhaps, as that on which you give your ridiculous 'Hitlerian' commands:


and your latest 'not-quite-Hitlerian'-but-definitely-equally-ridiculous command:


or the same basis on which Professor Bishop gives HIS own
'Hitlerian' command:

(The word 'Hitlerian' is NOT in the dictionary, so far as I know. It is something I just thought up, as it seems to be a pretty good way to describe those three utterly ridiculous commands, which seem calculated EXACTLY to mitigate against any possibility of changing things in US education - assuming there is anything that needs to be changed in US education).

(It should be possible, in a democracy - even in a 'democracy' like the USA, which is only nominal [like India] - to change many things about institutions and instrumentalities in the 'democracy' - but it will NEVER happen for as long as such ridiculous 'Hitlerian' commands are floating around the public mindspace).

I repeat: BOTH you AND Hansen have actively lied in regard to your descriptions of work done by me. Why not take suitable action against me, legal expert that you are?

Perhaps the moderator does not share your (undoubtedly sore) feelings?

And yet, now YOU are continuing to interact with Chandy. Does that mean that you deserve Chandy? Well...

Apparently "Bob" does not feel the need to heed your pleas... why not issue another Hitlerian command?
