Subject: Re: Tail recursion & CL From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Thu, 11 Oct 2001 21:36:47 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Juliusz Chroboczek | May I most respectfully suggest that you might want to actually read | what people say before following up? The only excuse you have for your incredible arrogance is that you lack the English language skills to understand when people who argue against you understand more of the topic at hand than you do. Going back through your tremendously snotty articles, you have consistently missed the point that people have tried to provide you with ever more detail and examples and arguments, but it appears that your inability to grasp arguments that run counter to your existing beliefs is not solely caused by an abject failure to listen -- it has deeper reasons. I suggest that you talk to someone who can help you understand that people who argue against you may have a slightly different set of premises than you do and that even if your divine intuition about the eternal truth of these premises seem so unquestionable to yourself, they are in fact _bunk_ when seen by others in the light of your failure to address criticism and your failure to grasp that people in fact _do_ read what arrogant nonsense you spout. /// -- My hero, George W. Bush, has taught me how to deal with people. "Make no mistake", he has said about 2500 times in the past three weeks, and those who make mistakes now feel his infinite wrath, or was that enduring care?
