Subject: Re: cost, value, price From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Thu, 28 Mar 2002 23:18:35 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Thomas Bushnell, BSG | If you think I am so deficient in thinking skills, mightn't you take a | moment to inform the people who run my graduate program? Excellent! Completely irrelevant self-defense. I must have hit a nerve. Look, you unthinking brute, just because you can behave when you are fed your daily ration of bananas in a safe and friendly environment, does not mean that you are not a danger to people if you are exposed to stimuli you cannot handle, and for which _thinking_ is required. This would have been glaringly obvious to you if you _had_ any thinking skills, so by doing the stupid trick of defending yourself by pointing to what you do _not_ do here, namely answer to an authority that controls your future, you show us only that you are quite unable to realize what you do but only behave if other people can pose a threat to you, and _that_ is unlikely to change between contexts. Some people actually _only_ behave when they believe they can get hurt if they do not, and react with extreme hostility to anyone who tries to tell them to behave unless they _also_ offer a credible threat. I think you have demonstrated very clearly that you (1) only think when you get hurt if you do not, and (2) revert to an extremely primitive mode of action when you fail to think. | Oh, but I'm not posting "so many lies". I'm just happily acting as the | foil for your nastiness. And the purpose of this is what? Character assassination like you had to engage in with Kent Pitman, who as far as I can see, has never hurt _anyone_ here? Are you sure you are not completely insane who keep this going? I mean, I only react and have no opinions of my own, in your very own words, so this is all you fault, right? Why do you continue to post so much hatred and think that this forum is Thomas Bushnell's personal hate forum? I mean, you seemed to be opposed to this idea as long as you did not engage in it yourself. And yet you attack Kent Pitman for his supposed hypocrisy. Let me know that you can control yourself before you try to control or even play with others: Cease and desist. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
