P J says....
FWIW P J says a lot of things.
If you, Roy Schestowitz are trying to put yourself on the same level as PJ,
You aren't worthy to shine her pumps.
She has made a difference, even though I don't always agree with her, I
respect her and acknowledge her accomplishments.
You have done nothing but make a mess.
You're considered a joke outside of COLA and you know it.
Hopefully she is smart enough to figure this out and distance herself from
you Roy Schestowitz, the groupie.
Also, hopefully she has had a third party look at her Groklaw site, which
you administer, because we wouldn't want her to get hacked like your site
Due totally to your ineptness BTW.
