Mike Atherton is not Mr. Henry

Please help make the Manifesto better, or accept it, and propagate it!

In fact, Mike Atherton is someone else on this forum who feels so insecure or
probably doesn't want to jeopordize his job or his rank but would preach to us

His profile, I would deduce, is of an older man who is probably "impotent" and
somewhat frustrated - an alpha male as is known in Anthropology.  Here is a
piece about such "Alpha males":

"The very recent history of human warfare provides a contrast: The alphas -
generally old men - sequester themselves in safety, often where the young
women are, and dispatch the subordinates - generally young men - out to fight
and die.  In no other species have alpha males gotten away with such cushy
arrangements for themselves......apart from the social insects, no other
species has been clever enough to invent war.  It is an institution optimally
configured to benefit the alphas."

Quiet pathetic isn't it?  So, our Mike Atherton is an alpha male on this forum
who has been and probably will be getting away with the same kind of crap and
the aliasing of his name to hide his true identity is indeed for that purpose
