  Yes, this is Erann Gat: Commit some evil, wait for others to rectify it.
  Lie, misrepresent, smear, then make it somebody else's responsibility to
  make sure that something else, which may or may not be the truth, is also
  posted.  Anyone reading it are left to speculate who might be right, you,
  who still might have more credibility in some circles, despite valiant
  efforts to destroy it through this self-destructive campaign, or somebody
  who gets pissed off by your continuous stream of falsehood and negativity.

  Sure, I know you are trying to prove me wrong.  Your "game" now is to
  make those who think that negative articles and commentary on the Net are
  bad, think again: by posting easily debunked bullshit and negative crap
  about vendors, products, _whatever_, your "hope" is to enlist even more
  positive reactions than I got, because your game is to beat _me_, not
  help anyone and certainly not Common Lisp, and if you hurt a company or
  two in the process, if some people get another uphill battle to fight,
  who cares?  Another part of the "game" is obviously to show people how
  irrelevant negative commentary on the Net is, but all you will achieve
  is that people regard Erann Gat as a certifiable nutcase who has only
  destroyed himself.  But have fun with your stupid little game, Erann!
