Subject: Re: OT: Erik Naggum's Long-Windedness (was: (endp lst) or (null lst)) From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 13 Jan 2003 11:14:46 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * "Aurélien Campéas" <aurelien...@wanadoo.fr> | I uncovered you, Erik Naggum. Huh? I was covered before? Are you covered? Is this some French thing? In my culture, openness, honesty, even directness is valued and respected, but it appears that in yours, duplicity and crouching under cover is so valued that removing someone's cover is damaging. I am unfamiliar with the French culture, but from what little the news media report from your country, you appear rabidly racist -- and your deeply disturbing statement strongly suggests the mental workings of a person who searches for and quickly reaches a point where he knows /enough/ about someone else. This kind of attitude amazes me whenever I see it -- because to be human is to be able to think, without having to tell everybody what you have thought about; the obvious corollary is that you can never know /enough/ about any other person. But apparently this is not how French people work. Yours is truly one of the most insane comments this newsgroup has ever seen. I can only marvel at the mental damage that preceded it. How much of your psychology and behaviour is tied up in preventing yourself from being "uncovered" by others? What are you so afraid of that you think such a statement says anything whatsoever about any other person than yourself? You revealed something disturbing about yourself with that comment, but I wonder how you can both be afraid of being uncovered and at the same time reveal that you are. I think I have "uncovered" you, too: Your need to feel in control is preventing you from being in control, inviting others to manipulate you, instead. | You are not a human, are you ? I am not French, if that is what you imply with this very disturbing question. I am sorry to see that your mental capacity has been so far exceeded that you have to resort to such incredible lunacy, but this is also quite consistent with what you have shown me up to now: When you cannot deal with a fact, you work very hard to deny it. It is a pattern that I had only thought would be found in psychotics, and I do not mean that in the usual Usenet insult way, but in its clinical meaning. How does it feel to be you, Aurélien Campéas? Are you able to process information or do you make up everything you need for your mental well-being? It is because I jerked you out of your cozy psychosis that you have to react the way you do, right? But now I wonder, did you ever get as far in your erudition that you looked up "rule of law" and figured out what a jackass you have been in this forum and for what you will now be remembered? This newsgroup sure gets a large share of deeply disturbed people. Are there more like you at home, Aurélien? Are there someone I can talk to, some more French people, perhaps, to learn what it means for someone like you to be uncovered? It is such a deeply twisted thing to say. Perhaps I should just conclude that you are insane? -- 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.
