| Woo hoo! I've completed the Naggum Hat Trick!!

  You are right.  It was a mistake to expect you to think.  I seem to make
  that mistake a lot, even with people who make such an effort to prove
  that they would rather die than think.

| Much of the message to which you were reponding was simply copied from
| your own bellicose posts to this newsgroup.

  Do they teach this style at JPL?  I ask because the other nutjob there
  also thinks that copying someone else's words somehow makes him less
  responsible for what he is saying.  Since part of the point with a common
  language is that we do indeed copy both words and phrases from one
  another, this particularly infantile way to shirk responsibility for your
  own actions betrays a serious personality disorder.

  On the other hand, I thought what you "said" made sense, so of course I
  should have realized it was not "your words".

| For example, the exchange above is you arguing with yourself, Naggy.

  You appear to believe, like that "Mel" chimp, that misspelling someone's
  name has any other effect than to make people aware of your immaturity.

| You project your self-loathing all over c.l.l.

  I note with some humor that you see it this way.

| Some people have tried to convince you that you fail to practice what you
| preach.  I choose to point and laugh at the dancing monkey.

  *laugh*  Yeah, people like you have tried to "convince" me all right.

| Yes, that's schadenfreude, but I have an excuse: I'm retarded and insane.

  Indeed, you are the kind of person who needs excuses for what you do.

| >   There is yet hope for you.
| I thought I was doomed to self-destruction?

  No, it is my goal.  If you think that my having a goal constitutes your
  being doomed, may I suggest an already established religion or cult?

| Make up your mind, Nagster.

  I am not the kind of person who makes up his mind about other people.  If
  I were, you would never have received a response from me to begin with.
  So I keep hoping that you will grow a brain and a conscience.

| >   you taunt and try to provoke and harrass people.
| Dance, monkey, dance!

  You make a pretty good case for making up my mind, however.

  You are being laid off at JPL, are you not, or fired?  What did they
  catch you doing?  Wacking off to your own news articles, or do you have
  wait for me to respond to them first?  Or just general monkey business?
