Subject: Re: Questions about Symbolics lisp machines From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Fri, 29 Mar 2002 00:32:24 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Thomas Bushnell, BSG | Aw, does it make you feel bad to have people talk about you in | unflattering tones? It has no possible constructive function in this newsgroup, but is an obvious personal exchange between you two, who have found something you can gang up on, nonthinkingly, yet apparently uniting in your affinity for toying with people. Yet another bystander has entered the game, willing to fight, but not to help reduce what he obviously considers bad. Thus the badness increases and when two bad people gang up on one, the result is much more evil than one bad person acting alone, because you are able to drive up eachothers hatred and hostility unchecked. This is the group frenzy of hateful mobs in miniature. Most people are smart and ethical enough to figure this out, and stay out of such situations and do not cheer people on, either. As soon as some immoral idiot does, more people feel compelled to join the fray, which is why you should not cheer eachother on, but stop to think about what you do. You two do not, which indicates that this is not a desire to see change for the better in this newsgroup, it is only a desire to hurt and destroy. There is no longer any doubt about your character or your goals, Thomas Bushnell. You two are now _only_ being destructive here. Cease and desist. This is only a reaction to your behavior. No action on your part, no reaction on mine is necessary. Everybody knows what I think of evil bastards like you, but you keep obsessing about posting your hatred for that monster you have given my name in your deluded mind, and that is, frankly, annoying. I do not feel bad when people of your moral caliber show their true nature. You do not elicit such emotion, only disgust that you keep posting and making it necessary to respond to you in the hopes that you will shut the fuck up, but you are not going to, are you? Cease and desist, Thomas Bushnell. _You_ are the aggressor. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
