Subject: Re: Deleting directories in lisp From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Tue, 25 Jun 2002 22:03:45 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Paul D. Lathrop | Interesting how you can show that you *know* the rule while showing you can't | follow it. Thanks for the pointer. Sorry I didn't stroke your ego properly. Do you feel better now? If so, could you get back on track and try to focus on the _problem_ you had? It was something with Common Lisp and directories, I seem to recall. Your personality disorders and personal problems are _not_ the business of this newsgroup, no matter how you feel. So, is there any way we can help you solve your _problem_ and get you to quit attacking people like you seem to need when you are given an answer you were not prepared for? You asked for help, you got an answer and an opportunity to learn from it, but chose to react like a whining little kid. Nobody cares what some jerk finds "silly". So you were told to shut up, and had to react even more childishly, but this is _not_ a forum for whining little kids. It is a forum for programmers. Egos are equally irrelvant. Learn to take charge of your own emotions, keep them out of other people's faces, and stick to the task at hand. You had a _programming_ problem, did you not? Lots of people were willing to help with your _programming_ problem, but if you insist on being a whining little kid, you will not get help from anyone for a very long time. So, which is more important to you: To whine or to get help to solve your problems? It is a _really_ simple choice. Just make it and behave in a way that communicates goal-directed intelligence. Do you understand this? -- Guide to non-spammers: If you want to send me a business proposal, please be specific and do not put "business proposal" in the Subject header.
