"masturbatory" is a nice enough touch. Barely mediocre, though. You answered the question I posted earlier - your posts are getting boring.
And - you truly cannot recognise a straw-man even after it was pointed out to you twice by me alone: "(as opposed to creating a straw-man by trying to blur the distinction between the dominion expeditionary force and the dominion proper)"? It's not rocket science.
PS - Feel free to have the last word. This has become, indeed, a waste of time.
