Subject: Re: Understanding Erik Naggum (was Re: CLOS is hard. Let's go shopping (Was Re: Lisp in Python)) From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 05 Oct 2002 13:10:25 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Oleg | Why would you say this about someone who turns hysterical and verbally | abusive in response to even mild and polite criticism? I ask that question each time someone goes postal for a simple correction. | In fact, he cares so much about his image, he brags about his pseudo- | intellectualism non-stop: This is so false it is instead quite telling about your prejudicial nature. | "when I sit down to study the superstring theory", etc. (The last one | made me laugh out loud when I read it: I got a degree from MIPT (the one | Landau et.al. had founded), and to the best of my ability to judge | people, even supposing that a phoney like that could study theor-phys is | ridiculous) Yes, the best of your ability to judge people. Indeed. | What's sad is that his trolling and unprofessionalism drives the whole | newsgroup down there with him, simply because normal people tend not to | stay, while sock puppets do. Are you a sock puppet, then? -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
