I would say three things here:

First, if all the NFB has is BS, then why are you here.

2.  Is it possible that you are angry with us because we didn't 
automatically agree with you.  Gary is right, there is no way you can 
prove your allegation, probably the best you can do is to not support 
this establishment, and urge others not to do so.

and 3. Is it possible, that you gave them four ones instead of a five 
and three ones -- and they were right?
