TURMEL: Who or What is Jay Hanson Anyway?
     JCT: Jay Hanson's articles on sci.econ are most voluminous, even 
more than mine, and most critical of orthodox economics. So what is 
the unthinking response? Please note that these are posts to a public 
newsgroup that no one has to read unless they choose to download them.

     JCT: I don't mind that Patrick doesn't want to read Hanson's 
articles but I mind that he wants to have a vote on preventing me from 
reading them too. Why do the censors always come out of the woodwork 
when they could simply not read the articles? 
     I've had to deal with these kinds of people who think they can 
insult the victim of their cencorship with discussions on the best way 
to avoid reading it:

     JCT: I've noticed the same thing when people complain about my 
posts. Much time is spent discussing how to help the technical 
incompetents how are too lazy to read their software manuals how to 
use their kill-files. That's the real waste of time.
