Do you know the definition of the word hypocrisy? If so please explain
how I was being hypocritical to point out that there really isn't anyone
else who continually does what you do?

Martyr. Are we supposed to beg you to come back now? Or is this your
attempt at trying to align the forces of the list against myself or

Once again, do you know the definition of that word. How is it hypocrisy
to point out that it appears you are actually just paranoid and that you
can't blame this on other people rationally?

I'm not even sure what the line about "It's nice to know that select
people here are as objective in their own minds as a psychiatrist"
means, to be honest. I was just joking that your continued paranoia does
make one wonder.

paranoid. But even in silence you're trying to stir things up here.
