I forgot about that bloody clamp.. No wonder those things have dissappeared out of sight.

That's "Luther's".

That's "referring".

Excellent. Now having written that, let's now see what you follow it up with:

> So get your head out of your **** cos

That's "because"

> I hate to break your self delusional imagine

That's "image".

That's "you're".

Pretty contradictory to what you're preaching, isn't it? I wouldn't be surprised though if it all
goes over your head.

No, I don't want a date with you, and I prefer that you keep your physical endowments out of sight,
if you please. I'm not into quaint little idiots who have no grasp of concepts slightly more complex
than the simplistic water-cooler banter about the previous day's telly. You might have better luck
with the singles ads.

That's "spineless".

> I apologise to the list as I would prefer to respond to Jose in private but am unable to do so

Why John, am I turning you on?

As expected, no comments on the topic raised, but instead another tiresome, barely literate whine
full of trailer trash name-calling and comical foot-stomping.

If you can't stand any insults, I suggest you stop dishing them out, as you can see form your post
below. Like I wrote before, stick to harmless giggling at gossip, Johnny.

Yes, just keep giggling at gossip...

Well, one thing I'm sure of: The University will be interested to know how you use its resources to
post your trash. You really are an incurable idiot for not being aware of the consequences of your
little personal vendettas on a public forum such as this.

It's amazing how you tout yourself as a University staff member, use a University e-mail account,
and spout the kind of illiterate, uneducated rubbish that you do. It's a poor reflection on the
University's judgement, and one which they might want to correct.

Keep up the posts: the dirt which will bury you just keep piling higher.
