The thing that baffles me is why you're so antagonistic to Phil.
There just doesn't seem to be anything objectionable about him,
and yet you've sort of taken him on as some kind of whipping boy.

: Why is he so obsessed with censoring me?

I think it's because a lot of people complained about you
when you were here the last time, since you were scaring off
tender, innocent, young academics.

I think Phil took it upon himself to rectify a situation he felt
somewhat responsible for, having met you while slumming on, and, assuming you were normal, inviting you to discuss
issues on sap.

: I mean, is anyone really threatened by my satanic verses?

Again, last time you were here, it was felt that your funning
was not entirely consistent with the highfalutin nature of a
science forum.

Uh, no. I don't think so.
