    If you are gonna post utterly silly, idiotic, wrong crap, at least use a
    smiley so people know you are joking.
    One of the first sentences at the begging of the article even says:
    "No one person or even small group of persons exclusively "invented" the
    Internet. It is the result of many years of ongoing collaboration among
    people in government and the university community."
    Sure looks like an absolute statement, FROM YOUR OWN SOURCE!, proving he
    didn't invent it, and that it was a lie.

    is the text from the 10Q and on what page? A simple copy and paste of the

    The only one here who has a bad memory here Phillipe ... is you! Just where
    is the text from the 10Q and on what page? A simple copy and paste of the

    never posted it ... Just why is that Phillipe?
