Actually, I think continuing to post in this thread is a bad idea. Even if the story is to take on some new wrinkles with Mr. Hill attempting to get some press over the incident, I feel that the balance of new discussion vs. the personal invective that this thread continually seems to inspire falls squarely on the side of closing this discussion.

If indeed something new pops up about the subject, via Mr. Hill's own publicity effotrts or otherwise, and if you believe you can conduct yourselves in a civil manner while discussing it, feel free to open a new thread at a somewhat later date.
