I'll be certain to repeat myself verbatim, then.  I'm not going to
follow through on what appears to be an attempt at an IRC style ad

I've tried to talk to you about this in private, Mr. Cronqvist, and it
seems your only interest is in generating public drama; you're happy
to criticize people without actual evidence of fault in public, but
won't so much as reply in private.  That pretty much tells me
