  Not at all.  I was referring to a fellow Norwegian who is permanently
  clueless, yet very "helpful", so people get much further astray than they
  were to begin with.  With luck, you thought it was you because you have
  been relieved of his "helpful" response.  It is important to realize when
  somebody would be hurt by being helped to achieve what they ask for, and
  _not_ to hurt people who ask for help in hurting themselves.  Some of the
  clueless "good samaritans" out there never seem to learn this.  Since
  this particular cretin is one of those who go totally bananas when he is
  not allowed to wear his halo after helping to hurt someone, I find it
  vital to newsgroup peace not to name him, so at least he has a choice of
  not responding and thus keeping the mystery of his identity instead of
  making it obvious that he does not even understand when to shut up.  So,
  in summary, no, it was not you I referred to.

  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.
