I considered an actual response, but most of what I'd say is pretty obvious...
I may quote his bit about my "conspiracy" post and append it to what I said there, because his absurd take on it is sort of funny, in an ironic "WTF?!?" kinda way, especially in light of Dr. Douglas' crazy "henchman" allegations and accusations to which the post was meant to respond... (Methinks it's possible Robert might be a little satire-impaired, himself...though it's far more likely that he was feigning ignorance for his audience, as I suspect he was throughout most of that sore loser, "If you guys won't let me be the captain of the team, I'm takin' my kickball and goin' home" response.)
But to Robert all I can say is so long, sweet prince... Our brief encounter was kinda pleasant, mostly--even when you tried to insult, you did so with some intelligence, rather than relying exclusively on the usual twin epithet categories of bad language (fuckhead!) and eeeeevil sociopolitical grouping (fascist!!)--and I'm sorry to see that you were and remain so unwilling to stand your ground when things get rough--or even to compete on an even playing field, where you permit everything I say to appear, rather than picking and choosing only those comments you agree with or have a ready answer for. I sincerely expected better from you...
Nevertheless, it was fun while it lasted... Should you ever change your mind, I'll be here... (I'll probably keep checkin' in on your blog, regardless... ...and if you do post something intriguing, I may even respond, as well... Like I said, I like how you write, even if I think most of what you actually say is shite.)

Twigs and pebbles tossed from behind the skirts of mommy moderation:
Thank you Dr. Douglas for the kind words and links to the Realist. I am afraid that the longer Walter (Walter James Casper, III) continues with his delusional rantings, the further he will slip down into the depths of his paranoia. There is nothing that we can do other than to block him from our blogs and such (I've already had to block him from my blog and Facebook page), and simply allow him to rant on his own site. Eventually he will alienate himself from even his own followers as they begin to realize the depth of his illness.I'm sorry, Rob... But I'm not real impressed by a guy (or pair of guys) who speak ill of me from behind a screen of moderation... ...and I don't much value the opinions of anyone who is, either...
And as Walter is reading this blog, I would offer him this advice: seek professional help and seek it now. Do not wait.
So, I'm glad you two are having fun n'all... but until you're willing to say your piece in a place where folks are free to respond--ALL folks, not just the people and responses you pick and choose--you might just as well not be talkin', least as far as I'm concerned.
While folks like you and Donald seem eager to hide what those you disagree with have to say by moderating your comment sections for content and limiting the number of verbatim quotes, citations, and links you use when blogging, I want nothing more than to give folks every opportunity to read exactly what you have to say, in all of it's contextual glory, and thus will quote and link to your exact words as often as I can... ...and sure, I'll even add a few if you folks don't feel I've given you enough "Look at ME!!!" time.
Everyone please, go look at Donald Douglas and Robert P. Tuttle, III. Read what they have to say. Weigh their arguments (as well as the arguments of those who disagree with 'em, of course), judge as fairly as your conscience allows, and come to your own conclusions.
I ask for nothing more.
And I ask for nothing less.
