if you're likening the activity of TT personnel (such as myself, on
occasion) to the thieves who loot archaeological sites for profit, or are
inferring that the people who excavate sites on TT's behalf are incompetent
when compared to the rest of the profession, I would suggest that you equip
yourself with the services of a good libel lawyer. If it's meant to be a
joke, don't bother giving up your day job, you're not funny.
