Barbara and all,

  If this is true it sounds an awful lot like sour grapes. From
what YOU allegedly have said, it seems that YOU want to unload
all manner of interpretations about others BUT when they post a
response to your interpretations instantly we are going to sue,
threaten legal action blah blah blah.

  Personally, at best I thought your story was just the same old
allegations (nothing new and incredible) being rehashed for the
100th time in the last 10 years, and at worst just a cheap
attempt at publicity.

  You might try and do something constructive where you can
received the glory and credit you deserve for a change.....like
fdisking your hard drive.
