| Why do you get so excited?

  obviously, because I care.  no, I don't have to care, either, but if I
  didn't care, why the hell would I spend any time at all trying to learn
  new stuff from others as well as help those who want to learn something I
  know?  since I do care, I think those who pretend to want to learn, but
  really only want others to do their homework for them, are posting on
  fraudulent terms.  I don't think people should get away with fraud.  I'm
  sure you think it's none of your business, until _you_ get defrauded, but
  then you'll expect somebody else to care about it, like the police or
  whatever, but you can't take every fraud to the police, and if you don't
  react to small fraud, you pave the way for big fraud.

  I'm sure you don't understand any of this.  why should _you_ care?
