I am disappointed in you. My real name is Cronan Maliki Jamel Thompson.
Cronan Maliki Jamel. I have posted this on numerous occasions. It is
unusual, I'll grant you, but my mother has a penchant for such things.
My brother is Imani DeJesus(Faith in Jesus) and my sister Shari Aseba
(a river in Africa). The only one of us with a 'normal' name would be
my brother Christopher Manly. He is named after my great-grandfather.
Again, this is irrelevant to the points YOU raised oh so long ago.

I will offer up to you my private telephone number so that you may call
me. It would be an honor to speak with you. I was planning on coming to
WorldCon but my erudition must take precedence. I honestly wished to
meet you face to face but a phone call will do.

How dare you. You, who would cower behind the moderators. You, who would
take up a bunker mentality towards all criticisms. You, who would throw
about accusations of plagiarism knowing that they have been thrown
unjustly at you.... Call ME a coward?

You shame yourself.

You are not the man you once were.

Then again perhaps you never were.
