Subject: Re: Rainer Joswig a sample of the con artists the Common Lisp community produces ( Re: thank you all, but...)

The mentally ill, as in the obsessed, frequently have problems that they think are very real, and spend a large fraction of their time complaining that others do not "acknowledge" their problems. The more they insist, the more real the problem is to them and the less real to everybody else. I think you are nuts, Peter Douglas, because /you/ cannot acknowledge that the so-called "problem" is of your own making. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
