Subject: Re: newbie in deep over his head From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Thu, 28 Feb 2002 18:25:14 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Rolf Mach <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Glenn got my fullest sympathy on that and we all got to "thank" some of | the "big" bullys here for such an outstanding archivement to dominate | this mood in their particular way. ;-( You just made it worse and more important. Why? | If they succeeded with one thing than it is to intimidate "ordinary" | people who have no interest in flames and personal ego wars. You just made it more "interesting" to everybody. Why? | If you don´t think you can dare to post a question before working through | Paul Graham´s books and still "tremble" to receive a beating there is | something seriously wrong here IMHO. 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.
