[Misdirected rant elided.] Next time, please try to read what I write. You somehow managed not even to see the word "better" up there. Omitting that word changes the meaning of the sentence to the nonsense you responded to. Shame on you for being so obsessed with your own opinions and your weltanschauung that you have no time nor desire to read and understand those of others before your knee-jerk reactions set in. I should have known better than to respond to you. You have argued so strongly for an insight-free way of seeing things that the hope of getting across to you that there are people out here who do not hold the standard opposite view of yours is rather slim. There is just no point in reiterating the same old arguments that have failed to work on you clueless leftist rebels before, so for the sake of argument, assume that I have already realized what your opinions and deeply racist view of white people are based on and do _not_ present you with a smorgasbord of well-known and mostly invalid arguments that you can dismiss out of sheer routine. It would help the _discussion_ if you also assumed that I had read the whole thread and your "deliberations", as well. You have completely failed to understand what a number of people have tried to commmunicate to you and instead respond as if you had a regexp argument matcher, caring about neither false positive nor false negative matches in the Perl fashion of using regexps. Like some people who have "trigger words" for the groups they believe are their opponnents and pidgeon-hole them upon using such words, you seem to have latched onto a set of arguments that respond not to a single thing anyone have said, but instead to some caricature of a standardized opponent, much like you talk about "the same people" both cultivating in the past and now exploiting those poor, helpless retarded people that could never in their lifetime have done anything to improve their miserable life under "imperialism" until Craig Brozefsky came along to explain everything to them. It is downright insulting to those who have tried to reach you despite the silly regurgitated "imperialist" and "exploitation" agitation that function so well as "trigger words" for pidgeon-holing you as a "leftist rebel without a clue". I am quite sure you had a brain when you accepted all those emotive "arguments", so if you work a little on it, it might yet work to receive arguments once again, perhaps even non-emotive ones now that you have grown a little older. You see, it looks like you have none at all when you fail to grasp that you are no longer succeeding with all that standard far-leftist rhetoric. I can talk to such phrase-book parroting robots locally any time I want to waste my time, but here on comp.lang.lisp, I expect more. _Especially_ more intelligence at work. The rest of your article is similarly misdirected. #:Erik -- Global warming is caused by too many humans not keeping their cool.
