Please understand the difference. I have absolutely no interest in talking with someone who focuses on what she _dislikes_ before she understands anything at all about what is going on, and especially not some ignorant arrogant jerk that spends her time whining about how _wrong_ some of the decisions that cannot be undone are. It is simply not fruitful to deal with people of so closed minds. They need a newsgroup for closed minds, and comp.lang.scheme is the best choice, now. Study first, become competent, make informed choices. _Quit_ whining! /// -- Why did that stupid George W. Bush turn to Christian fundamentalism to fight Islamic fundamentalism? Why use terms like "crusade", which only invokes fear of a repetition of that disgraceful period of Christianity with its _sustained_ terrorist attacks on Islam? He is _such_ an idiot.
