It is this attitude (like yours) that brought the matter (unnecessarely) to
this point. If you would have not answered with all this arrogance and
aggressivity, the matter would have been finished a long time ago. I think we
all would expect all the subscribers to this list (and the other lists as
well) to conduct themselves in a civilized and honourable way instead of
insulting, offending and swearing to someone who might be wrong but who is
genuinely asking for help.

What would you have said if I did behave like the conman did? Are you sure you
are not defending a lost cause or, at least, to be superficial in your assumptions?
