It's history by now anyway - just like fighting to a mirror.

2 last things :

I've personally been a target for TC's attacs for many times;" Saitek vs Novag,
CSTal vs ELVIS " :-)
I know the man - just as the other affected ones, and it personally didn't mean
a thing to me - 'cause he allways came back to normal behaviour.
This can't be an advice for common use - sure not - just to clarify your insist,
I got some cheap talkin' on this....'cause not affected.

Translate me your last sentence ! I don't get the meaning !

" Join the club " - what do you mean here ?

" Do you think it was easy for us " - what's that ? An academic question ?

Is it really so, that you couldn't read 5 + 6 lines above in my mail, that I
very well can feel, that you had a hard time on this decision ?

I've noticed similar vocabular in your mail to Steve - now same with me.
So be so kind ; gimme an explanation - I'm probably not that good anymore to
understand your native language.
