Well Mr. Whit, since I've never put those letters behind my name, or a Dr.
in front of it in 10 months of posting here, why would I start now?
I have never referred to my degrees here, period. You have always said
that degrees themselves are irrelevant. I agree with you on that point,
and I think the fact that I haven't made an issue of them indicates that.
You are the one who is now making an issue of my doctorate. Why are you
doing that, Mr. Whitaker?

What I recall is that someone flamed you for your lousy writing while you
were ridiculing another poster for that. Your response made it very clear
that you have a PhD, too. I don't recall anybody being upset about that.
I do remember you becoming very upset when I called you "Dr. Whitaker" in
the next post addressed to you, though.

All kinds of wingnuts have PhDs, Mr. Whitaker. You're living proof of
