Also, I'm just another input out of over 2000 people. I have no power
over who posts anything. It's not my list. Maybe I'm surrounded by

"court tips and tricks" or whatever the formal name is, is ALL ABOUT
"pissing matches" and it's a lot better to practice it online than in a
courtroom where the outcome can be more drastic than hurt feelings. I
wish you had used quoting like I always do, that way I'd have a better
idea of what you are referring to. If you had an idea different than
one I expressed, you might have been able to share it also in a way that
didn't appear to be a personal message better left to e-mail like this
Because I don't discuss list topics for free, even if they are about the
list itself, I'm going to post this reply to it so others might agree or
disagree and express themselves in a way that makes either of us look
like an idiot. Then we can hold a poll for those who wait to act in
concert with the majority.
> You may have a lot of information to pass onNot really. You must be new to the list, thinking it was mine and all
that. If you weren't so new, you'd know that I have messages blocked
for rules like everyone else, and you'd also know that I'm a Johnny-
One-Note" because I spend most of my list-related efforts trying to get
a larger number of the over 2,000 (do even 1% post messages anyway??)
see my strategy of prioritizing things in a proper temporal order, and
that I have settled upon the substance of what I consider to be WHEN a
"case" begins (in the IMOC*) (look in the mirror and say that three
times!) AND how to deal with it in those first few seconds ("Disqualify
Now, about spelling: most of my life there was never a question of
having a "stance" on correct spelling. Only after the mass diseducation
following the 1970s could such a concept come up. I thought I was
helping people figuratively born only yesterday when I informed the
group of the power and effect of a misspelled word in a court setting.
Do you care to refute my understanding and explain how and where anyone
gets the power to make record that you meant other than what you
actually said? Do they even do that for mentally retarded people? They
can't get away with trying to do it with me.

know that the outcome will be different for the correct spellers than
for the incorrect spellers.
I do a lot of things the government does. You'd be surprised. If you
do nothing the government does, I can't wait to see the biographical
movie of your life!
> But i guess that makes you feel better.I don't really understand you, since your whole premise has been wrong
from the start. Would you like to try again to communicate your real
problem? Is it spelling? Or is it that I'm politically incorrect in
letting people supposedly interested in court fights experience rising
adrenaline levels when I strike a nerve?
One last point - what does it say about one who only sees the list as a
place to get information? And then, what does it say when after their
own consideration of it, they come to totally wrong conclusions about
what they read? Is it really wrong if I treat list opponents the same
way I'd treat a new prosecutor or judge? My poker mentor says to never
give anything to the game, and that poker is applicable to many other
areas of life. Two years ago I never heard of the game, now I don't
feel the day complete until I've won at least two sit-down tournaments.
My poker and mixed martial arts training, little as they both were, each
played their part in my last IMOC, disqualification session and victory!
I can't wait to see some of your favorite tips and tricks on the list!
I'll be watching for them, and maybe soon newbies will mistake the list
for being yours!!
