  Would you let us in on your inventions in telepathy?

  Just because you believe something does not make it fact.  You seem to
  have a /really/ hard time grasping this extremely simple concept.

| You speak with disdain of those who think "absolutely," but your behavior
| in this forum often amounts to a call for those who don't meet your
| absolute standards of technical understanding to commit suicide and
| recycle "the wasted resources that did not achieve contextual
| understanding in its lifetime."

  This would be the conclusion from someone who does not understand
  context.  Just as expected, in other words.

| Compassionate people think that there is something profoundly wrong with
| someone who values technical ideas above human life.

  Are you saying that you consider yourself /compassionate/?  *laugh* That
  /really/ takes the cake.  You are an abusive, obsessive nutcase who has
  such a huge hangup with me that you keep harping on the same string long
  after it has ceased to be relevant to anyone else.  You are a waste of
  space and a serious annoyance to this forum.  The only way you could
  improve on the condition in this newsgroup were to quit posting your
  abusive messages directed at me.  People need your poisonous bile like
  they need a punctured gall bladder.  Everybody here knows that you have a
  serious emotional problem with respect to me and that you are unlikely to
  ever get over it.  So who cares?  /You/ keep bringing the painful things
  up again and keep re-living it as if I should care that you inflict pain
  on yourself.  You could stop that any moment, but you don't.  Clearly,
  you are stark raving mad and instead of seeking help to get over your
  traumatic experiences, seek to inflict pain on others, as well.  This is
  evil.  This is why you think others are evil, too.  This is why you will
  never become a human being worth having compassion for.

  So go kill yourself, now.  OK?
