Subject: Re: Java/Lisp Language Evolution Correlates From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 2000/06/24 Newsgroups: comp.lang.java.advocacy,comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.scheme Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Yiorgos Adamopoulos | But I replied to the one (obviously Erik) that said something along | the lines (leave us who write bug free code alone). So your memory is seriously faulty, too. Big surprise. But don't you even have the tools to go back and find out who you replied to? Too lazy and careless, perhaps? No wonder you commit many errors. | We are all humans, and as such, prone to error no matter what. "Errare humanum est" is an _unfortunate_ fact, the consequence of which is that human existence errors requires eternal vigilance and conscious and conscientious carefulness. The fact is not an excuse to be sloppy because errors will occur regardless of effort. Both intelligence and effort affect the kinds of errors we commit and experience and very few people are so unintelligent that more effort cannot make up for it. | We are prone to error, even if all our prior work is bugless. And conversely, even you might get it right if you paid attention. | That is why I found this statement annoying and I replied in the | harsh way that I did (not that Erik's answers were smoother). Here's a hint: YOU DID NOT RESPOND TO ME, AND I DID NOT RESPOND TO YOUR "DREAM ON" IDIOCY. (Sorry about the sledgehammer, but you seem to have serious problems with normal delivery of clues.) _My_ biggest error is that I sometimes care too much. Most morons are simply not worth having _anyone_ care about them, but at times it takes too much time to figure out that some jerk is really a moron. Sorry about that. I'm working on it. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
