I thought not.

No, and I have never "bragged" about having a PhD, Mr. Whit. If you care
to do a Dejanews search, you'll find that I have mentioned it in only in the
context of some jokes about pizza. Some people got the double meaning when
I talked about my pizza homing device with the acronym PhD, and some didn't.

I've been flamed for incompetence and ignorance, and never once trotted out
my degrees as a defence, unlike you. Unlike you, as well, I let my posts
stand on the quality of my arguments. But you don't have that option.
