  You just made it worse and more important.  Why?

  You just made it more "interesting" to everybody.  Why?

  Yes, people like you who cannot let things go and actually answer the
  guy's _questions_, but get up on your high horse to denounce yourself and
  your own actions, except that you do not understand this because there is
  only ever somebody _else_ who do something wrong in your demented mind.
  Understand your own role, apologize to the newsgroup for what you have
  just done, and never, ever repeat such a foul stunt again, will you?

  What _actually_ prompted you _not_ to answer his technical questions?

  Xanalys just lost a potential customer.  We are using CMUCL, instead.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
