<text:p>Dear Alex Brown. Please prove that I am invalid ODF 1.0 (ISO 26300:2006).
I do not think that I am. In fact I think that your statement that there are
no valid ISO ODF documents in the world, and that there cannot be, is a brash,
irresponsible and indefensible piece of bombast that you should retract.</text:p>

He writes the worst English that I have ever encountered. It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm of pish, and crawls insanely up the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash.
— H.L. Mencken (on the writing style of President Warren Harding)
