Subject: Re: C# is not Dylan (was: Re: C# : The new language from M$) From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 2000/07/04 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.dylan Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * "Michael T. Richter" <email@example.com> | <tone style="sarcasm"> | A very cogent rebuttal. I have now seen the error of my ways. You | are a truly fiendish disputante for you have undone an opinion based | upon years of effort with a simple, two-syllable word. | </tone> Let's _quote_ from some of Michael T. Richter's eloquence on display for all the world to see (well, that part of the world which thinks Dylan is all the world, anyway): In <6Qi85.18115$ZI2.firstname.lastname@example.org>, Michael T. Richter <email@example.com>, presumably the same _gentleman_, writes: "Hey fuckhead" Granted, it's two words and three syllables, which could imply that Michael T. Richter is anywhere between 50% and 100% more cogent than Dave Bakhash's "bogus", but since the first word is but a noise word to get attention, it isn't worth anything at all, which means we're dealing with a neanderthal who is very envious of humans. Worse, yet, "bogus" is _way_ more cogent than "fuckhead", but then again, Dave is a Lisp user and Michael is a Dylan user, and we know what kind of people _they_ are: ... | Yes, Lisp has its advantages. Readability isn't one of them. ... hostile, illiterate bums who hate their parens, as this new evidence of eloquence and cogency shows so clearly. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
