Pirinen | Since some posters don't think this is a virtue Since Pekka P. Pirinen does not think others think this is a virtue, | and can't be persuaded otherwise, and his opinionated and arrogant self does not know how to /behave/ in a way that would persuade /anyone/ to follow his lead, | the best you can do is to teach this virtue to your students. the best people can do is kill-file the snotty bastard who only comments on other people and not on Lisp issues, ayway. | But do tell them to come. The only way we get more future contributors | is to teach them the value of sharing the knowledge. Yeah, and disrespect for other people. We sure need a lot more of that. People who /volunteer/ their disrespectful opinions about others in a discussion about civility should really have their heads examined. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
