No she doesn't Jim, you clearly said the savannah theory was dead long
before she started writing about AAT, and then had the nerve to berate
her for not properly researching her facts. I think you are the one who
is doing the misrepresenting.

But rather than actually reading them, you'd rather just make a
slanderous attack and skip the reading. Hmm. What a scientist
you are!

Yes, Jim, there ain't much water on the savannah. This means that
a savannah is "arid." Look it up.

With the vicious personal attacks you've made on Elaine lately, I am
not suprised she's thinking of ignoring you. She's shown an amazing
amount of patience and resilience and has rarely decended to your
level of flames and ad hominem attacks. It is obvious that you depend
on the attention you get from this newsgroup to make up for your
social shortcomings, and that secretly you are afraid that Elaine will
ignore you, as that would emasculate you in the eyes of the other
newsgroup readers.
