    From Lee Lofaso@2:203/2 to Earl Croasmun on Wed Oct 2 19:16:06 2013
    Hello Earl,

    You posted it in the Debate echo. I returned it here.
    Debate Echo msg 1620 on Docsplace, Sept 3, 2013.

    You are talking about a post that appeared in your echo on
    9/3/2013, at 11:24 AM. I posted it in THIS echo on
    9/2/2013, at 7:23 PM (#4997).

    Which leads to a somewhat obvious question: how dumb ARE
    you?

    How did it wind up in the Debate echo?

    YOUR explanation seems to be that I posted the message in my echo
    via the Prism BBS at 11:24 AM on September 3, 2013.

    So you are blaming Janis Kracht's BBS for this mess?

    And then I patiently waited until Jan. 1, 2098, at exactly zero
    o'clock, to repost the same thing in your echo via the Prism BBS.

    Now I get it. Janis Kracht's BBS is a Time Machine.
    And Earl Croasmun is a Time Traveller.

    If that is true,

    Say wha'? The Earl Croasmun of the year 2098 is not the same
    Earl Croasmun of the year 2013?

    Either something is true, or something is not true. It cannot
    be both. So please make up your mind. Which Earl Croasmun are
    you talking about? Is it two different Earl Croasmuns, or is
    it one and the same Earl Croasmun?

    you aren't going to READ IT for another 85 years!

    Well, it is good to know Bob K. will still be around 85 years
    from now. Not sure if I want to live that long, though.

    And yet you seem certain that you will still be the moderator
    of that echo in the year 2098!

    Only a time traveller would know. So please. You tell me.

    Indirectly, you are answering my question. You aren't coming right
    out and SAYING how dumb you are, but you are demonstrating it.

    Bob K. has made no claim to have built the time machine. As such,
    I doubt he knows how to use it. Or even where to find it.

    That doesn't belong in this echo. It apparently was a System
    fault.

    Let it go.

    Geez, you are as lost as Bob. If I had jointly posted the
    message in both echoes at the same time, they would have
    the same time/date stamp. If I had posted in Bob's echo

    You are trying to BS your way through again. You must be a
    student of Dick Cheney.

    The reality is, a post by you showed up in the Debate echo.
    Neigher I nor Lee knows how it happened. The only people who
    seem to claim enough knowledge to fake your post in another echo
    are Ross Cassell and Roy Witt.

    So, look at them.

    You posted this in Bob "if you ban me then I'll ban you" Klahn's echo. He may
    have some stern words for you. I have moved it to an echo where I can respond

    When I am wrong, I have no problem with admitting it. It
    has been two weeks, and Bob has let you skate on your
    violation of his rules. I was wrong in predicting that he
    would enforce them against you.

    I just read his response in the last packet I downloaded. I
    posted to him to let it go as it appears to be a system failure.

    I just downloaded the packet this message is in.

    IOW, I did tell him to stop. You were wrong to deny that is was
    a system failure. Or to divert from that, which ever way you
    want to describe it.
