KB, while you certainly have a right to defend yourself, yes, let's do hope SH investigates the number of aliases you've taken on and the countless harassing and abusive posts you've issued. This is not a matter of "pumpers" working to get rid of you - it's a matter of a general community sentiment which sees your brand of harassment to be distasteful at best and does not contribute in any constructive way to the discussion.  Most reasonable people accept divergent views on any given topic and are willing to listen to constructive criticism from many angles.  But the general sentiment is evidently that you have far overstepped the bounds of what is tolerable by this community. Whatever your standards of good taste and respectful discussion are, they are obviously not shared by most of the people of this board.  I would be surprised if you did not find the same on the Yahoo board.  Good luck to you.
