(I've erased this email something like six times.)

Stuart raises some good ethical questions.  I am still answering some of
them for myself.  But let me pose a question to ponder in parallel.  What
direct action IS allowed by your standard?  Can I shoot back?

It's great if, like you say, both sides get equal opportunity to speak.
This doesn't happen in the world I live in.  In my reality, I am on the
(currently) losing side.  The weaker side.  The oppressed side.  How am I to
get this boot off my neck if I'm not allowed to use my hands?
