Very convenient so now that as an editor you won't have to read a
complaint that you have allowed for plagiarism!

 I urge everyone else

his trap.  Just let it be clear that OPE is for comradely discussion and
debate, and not for flames, and that flaming behavior will not be
tolerated.  It's that simple.

I have had many scholarly and reasoned debates on this list with many
people. All you are doing is creating an excuse for not reading my
complaint of plagiarism,
and for the record... I did not start the recent flame war about TSSI,
Levy did.

You had until my recent post responded to my offlist posts. This policy of
not responding
to me just began to ignore my complaint of plagiarism!
