  Excuse me, Mr. Sarna, but I will make up my own mind about what I think
  is right or wrong, thank you. Don't ever try that again.
  If you find yourself able to provide any form of concrete evidence

  we will be more than happy to review them. In the meantime, I would
  suggest that you speak only on matters of which you have knowledge.
