  No, you were not.

  Yet you keep talking about me.  This is /very/ indicative.

  Look who has nothing to learn but everything to teach.

  /Why/ are people helping this cretin?

  Pascal Costanza, why do you give us the clear and unequivocal message
  that you prefer this newsgroup to be filled with this kind of misbehaving
  slut who tell people they need to learn to communicate with it instead of
  thinking people who want to learn Common Lisp and manage to focus on that
  task?  What do /you/ gain from a newsgroup full of people who behave the
  way you so strongly encourage?  You, the master of feel-good egoism, bear
  direct responsibility for the continued behavior of this cretin and the
  JPL lunatic by encouraging people to vent their feelings instead of trying
  to stick to technical matters.  This is evidently the kind of people you
  prefer to hang around with.  Take them with you to one of those feel-good
  places where you can all group hug and smooch!

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
