You may call it humor: I call it misdirection. You claimed that 
combining two antiretrovirals might cause a chemical reaction
that reduced the toxicities. I called you on that, and asked you 
to explain how that could be. You gave me this 2Na+Cl2
(I think what you might have meant was HCL+NaOH = H2O+NaCl)
rather than defending the AIDS specific allegation you made.
You canz duck and weave, but as long as you post scientific errors
and outright whoppers, I will continue to challenge them.
