  We can sure _discuss_ the differences, but you keep karping on what you
  _dislike_.  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.
