(1) Leo and Louis P. are not "professors." Leo teaches in high school and 
Louis P. is a computer programmer who, *as you well know*, is not a 
professor and holds that group in little regard. So why call them 
"professors"? It is an obvious ploy to discredit them by association.

(2) A number of people have written to say that "Carlos" is indeed 
Carlos, i.e. that is his real name. Yet you continue your totally 
baseless accusations.

(3) "Cheap political tricksters." "Muddled Professor." "Turgid 
opportunism." More baseless charges and cheap shots.

(4) Who is worse: a) Louis G?
                  b) Luis Q?
                  c) Shawgi?
                  d) Elsequin?

(d) is a jerk, pure and simple. He represents no threat to anyone and 
only discredits himself by his posts. (a) or (b), I might be confusing 
Louis G. with Luis Q., has threatened someone on the li*st with physical 
violence (a possible death threat). (a)-(c) have leveled the slanderous 
charges against others and deliberately misrepresented their political 
positions.

A lot of people seem to think that (d) is the worst. I don't see why *at 
all*.
