Ban *this*, boy!

But that's the manly kind of talk I like.  Direct, not weaseling in a
womanly way à la elderly Bev.  Yet I experience a creepy feeling
hearing such manly words coming from a guy who wears fancy earrings --
it's sort of oxymoronic and incongruous. It's like a bunch of
nappy-headed who'es (hi, Wilson!) performing scenes from _Beowulf_ in
Old English.

Honestly, folks, this "Ban that Aman bastard!" is getting more and
more amusing and makes me happier than a baby in a barrel of tits.

This "Ban-that-bastard!" brigade was formed by a highly respected
senior scholar, Beverly Olson Flanigan, a post-menopausal Associate
Professor of Linguistics.  As if that were not scary enough, now we
hear Dr. Bev's call to arms parroted by the heaviest gun yet -- a
lightweight graduate student and M.A. candidate in the English Dept of
the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I can't quite figure out why that Project Assistant in the very late
Freddy Cavity's DARE is joining Bev's Brigade and whether he's deluded
enough to believe that his call for banning me is having any influence
on *intelligent* Respected Regulars.

So, my friends and foes, is Scot LaFaive immature, ignorant, priggish,
"sensitive," stupid, suicidal, or what?  Or is he merely trying to
suck up to ADS-L's alpha-(fe)males?
