This is not "an eye for an eye", John; that you think it is shows how
little attention you've paid to the discussion. It is fallacious claim
versus correction, which is a very, very different thing.
I have repeatedly "dropped" this; every time I correct Helge's
distortions and fallacies, the matter is dropped, so far as I am
concerned. It is dropped right now, in fact.
But then Helge comes along an picks it up again, with a new and
increasingly desperate round of distortions and fallacies, which as I
have said before I will not allow to go uncorrected when they concern
me or my colleagues. Period.
So once again: the matter _is_ dropped, right now; unless Helge picks
it up again.
