Subject: Re: less parentheses --> fewer parentheses From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 2000/08/23 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Barry Margolin <email@example.com> | I interpreted your message that began with something like "You | aren't excused because you're German" as a complaint about people | with poor skills in English. Did I misunderstand the point of that | message? Yes. Of course you did. You can't even read anything I say without _imputing_ so much vile crap to it that one _has_ to wonder whence it all comes. There should be enough to attack me for in what I actually do, but you have to go out of your way to make it worse by attacking me for what I do not do, what I do not say, and you have _zero_ ability or willingness to question your own actions when you do this. Have you ever wondered what this makes you? Try reading what I wrote again, and restrict yourself to what I wrote, no Barry-Margolin-interpretations of it this time, OK?. I actually suggest you pretend someone else wrote it, so you can keep your head screwed on straight for a change. I'll answer the question a couple paragraphs up for you: You're the kind of man who would willingly jail and hang people for actions you _want_ them to have committed, Barry. You've done this before, and you'll do it again, as you do not learn from your past mistakes. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
