I'm going to ask you ala yourself, where is your >documentation? Mr. Moran, there is a piece of advice which I'm pretty sure is reproduced in news.announce.newusers called "check your attributions." That means: be sure you know who said what, so that you don't mistakenly attribute to one person what was said by another person. One clue is to count the number of angle brackets to the left of the text. In this case, you will see one to the left of "'Probably?' I'm going to ask...." which was said by you. Since you were responding to Daniel Mittleman, as quoted in my own article his text would have two angle brackets to the left. And since he was replying to you, your own _previous_ writing would have three angle brackets. Now, counting the angle brackets, we find that preceding the sentence starting "You do realize..." there are three angle brackets, not two. Therefore, that text was written not by Daniel Mittleman, but by ... Tom Moran. In other words, you just challenged yourself to supply documentation for your own claim.
