Point of order.

I did not use the term "misogynist" except once, and that was to
specifically state that I did NOT consider Wolfe one. I believe it
was David who brought the term in -- specifically, he spoke of
"blatant misogyny" in regards to certain themes (which I DO find
disturbing; make no mistake) in Wolfe's oeuvre.

(Nor am I at all clear on why you accuse me of being a gentleman,
based on this coinscription; nor, for that matter, of why it would be
something I should consider an "accusation," as opposed, to, say,
a "compliment.")
