Learn to read carefully. I said it was something that *could* be done. I never actually said it's the best solution. And I never actually said that we *use* violence to make the point. I just said that somebody armed with a baseball bat should explain how we feel.

And anyhow - in some cases it isn't "violence", it's "attempting to pound a message through a skull too thick for normal clues to penetrate". But you knew that already...
