Subject: Re: Questions about Symbolics lisp machines From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Thu, 28 Mar 2002 22:50:24 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Thomas Bushnell, BSG | I don't need to prove you wrong. I simply don't intend to dance | around providing you reactions you eagerly crave from others. Please quit projecting yourself onto me. | Now suddenly you're angry, upset, and ever-more-vicious. Please quit projecting yourself onto me. | And nothing makes your more angry, upset, and vicious, than my open | acknowledgement of how important it is for you to be that way, and my | desire to do nothing to stop you. Please quit projecting yourself onto me. | Quite the contrary Erik: I don't want to disprove you, I just want to | watch you twist. I'm sure that you're a nice person in many ways; but on | Usenet you play a clown exceedingly well, and I'm enjoying watching you. Please quit projecting yourself onto me. | And *that* seems to have you really upset. Weird. I think you are providing the world with a lot more information about yourself than you are ready to understand at this point. I look forward to the time when you figure out what you have done. Those who have gone before you on that path have generally been very, very quiet afterwards. A quiet Thomas Bushnell would be a remarkably good thing. You will keep posting until you understand, if only keep such understanding at bay. You will continue to portray more and more of yourself onto me, because you _have_ to kill that monster that has reared its ugly head within, and the only way to _really_ get rid of it is to quit life, as you are stuck in yourself. I actually appreciate that you have begun to self-destruct. If ou enjoy this so much, please use Google to watch how others of your kind have gone completely to pieces at the end of their USENET carreers. Your need to pretend that you are playing with others is interesting. It is _such_ a good indicator that you have lost control and have to work so hard to pretend to regain it. But this all shows that you do not take part in USENET discussions in order to discuss anything, learn anything, share any insight you might have, or try to educate others, you take part in USENET discussions in order to assassinate other people's character and play with them and destroy the utility of the forum. My mistake is to hope that your kind is able to think and actually come to USENET in order to take part in the _purpose_ of the newsgroups they post to. It is clearly impossible for low quality people like yourself to understand that you do in fact receive reactions to your own hostile behavior and cease and desist: To such people as yourself, the conclusion is that you can now elicit "reactions" form other people, and then you go ahead to do more bad. When you get a stronger negative raactions, you want not only to do bad things, but to take personal revenge and have to try to paint a portrait of your opponent such that you can defend your own behavior. It is fairly classical criminal behavior. It is nice to see that you have reached your final stage, however. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
