Subject: Re: The myth of "innovation" [repost, new subject] From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 2000/11/30 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Johan Kullstam <email@example.com> | ironically, it was erik naggum who stirred me to look at common-lisp | in the first place. I'm glad to hear that. I hear it quite often. As in "if Erik Naggum thinks something is great, it must have some _significant_ merit." | ah, he was perhaps kinder and gentler over in comp.emacs. Probably not. Just a lot fewer arrogant ignorants with an attitude. | here's a free hint for avoiding naggum flamage. erik usually doesn't | turn on the blowtorch until a couple of messages have gone back and | forth. resist the urge to respond. this will end the pain. i have | *never* seen erik pile on a second flame without a response to the | first. Thanks. And this is indeed good advice, as is "if shot at, look for the "trespassers will be shot" sign, don't just return the fire". #:Erik -- Solution to U.S. Presidential Election Crisis 2000: Let Texas secede from the Union and elect George W.
