"I have definitely developed more effectively when I had competition near my speed. This is probably time a good time to declare a new nemesis"

What I take the juxtaposition of these statements to mean is that your current nemesis (to wit, me) is no longer near your speed and thus no longer helpful to your development; ergo you need a new one. In other words, you admit defeat. I will attempt to be a gracious victor though I cannot promise such.

What? You are misinterpreting this; the comments are meant synergistically. I train more productively with competition, and I currently do not have a declared nemesis that I must destroy. Previous nemeses include Ali.

Also, consider the following:

Oh oops, I posted my response preemptively.

Oh sorry, I was too busy training to respond in a more timely fashion.

"I currently do not have a declared nemesis" - what blatant revisionism is this?

Your cherrypicking skills are admirable, yet somehow they don't bother me enough to cite counterexamples - as they are already numerous and self-evident. Best of luck in the search for a new nemesis!

Full disclosure - I was the person who sent Will the link where I noted that he was my nemesis. So Will's post isn't so much a comeback, but merely repeating to me something I'd already noted.

Will Enger: I already was the nemesis
Ian Smith: I guess I made it official. Prepare to get rekt.
Will Enger: You have referred to me as your nemesis previously.
Ian Smith: wat
It seems you are correct:
