Subject: Re: Preventing a class from being instantiated From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Fri, 30 Nov 2001 06:10:23 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Bruce Hoult | That's not totally foolproof as there is always a bigger fool (cue: | Erik), but it's probably enough. Are there really no psychiatrists near you who could help you get over your coping problems? No friends or anybody else who cares about you who could tell you to get over your personal problems? No girlfriend, not even a _pet_ who can tell you that you have lost your mental balance? You keep attacking me for no reason at all. I find your behavior pattern evidence that you actually _are_ retarded, specifically: devoid of the prerequisite intelligence to understand what you are doing to yourself. Thus, you are not _able_ to control yourself, but will continue to make similar idiotic remarks in the future, in order to prove that you are an asshole on a mission. Your next idiotic remark of the same kind will be the only proof we need of your mental state and that you should be put in global kill-files. /// -- The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture has taught you. Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are more important to you than those in your past ever will be. The world is changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
