No, I will not choose to unsubscribe to Genii. I will however write a letter to Genii and to the ALS Foundation in protest of this gauche remark. [/quote] That's noble of you. While you're at it, do make sure that the ALS guys know that you would have written a similar letter to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences if Albert Einstein had been the subject of the joke. I mean, you WOULD write such a letter, right? After all, to do otherwise would be to admit that, unlike Acer, who looked at Stephen Hawking and saw a renowned physicist whose name people recognize, you look at Hawking and see some handicapped person who needs an internet White Knight to defend him from a joke. Nah, you couldn't be that hypocritical. So, be sure to mention the RSAS, will you? They gave Einstein the Nobel, and would surely have been similarly outraged at the effrontery of having one of their members cited in a joke. After all, Einstein's far worse off than Hawking is right now. [/quote]
