You cropped the part where you were asked to back up your outlandish
claims about the state of Friendliness research.

You've pretty much proven that you have no way to back them up, but
I thought I'd give you one more chance.

Oh well.

On the off chance that you care, you've just passed below my "likely
to ever say anything useful" threshold, so I won't much be reading
your posts anymore.

I just have no interest in people who dodge when other people ask
them to back up their claims.
