Don't even mention the word "libel" again unless you file a suit.
You're free to say what you want about me, and anyone I know, but don't
threaten me ever again or even imply the threat of lawsuit.  Since you
refuse to apologize this will be my last e-mail on the topic with you.

I don't believe in censoring people who have a difference of opinion
with me, I feel that everyone has a right to express their opinions in
an open forum and censoring you would be wrong.  Like I said before,
I've got no problem with you since I don't know you, I have a problem
with your behavior.

That's the difference, I would have handled the same situation by
e-mailing you personally and ask you to retract your statements, not
attack you in your own backyard.  I'd assume that maybe you were having
a bad day and give you a chance make amends.  I wouldn't go on a
Freudian innuendo rampage about your insecurities and toss around empty
threats of "libel".

Have a good day Francis.
