I think it might be time to refresh our collective memory:

* Sin-Yaw Wang -> Erik Naggum, in <>:
| What!  Which planet you came from?  Go sit in the sigchi discussion
| group for 2 months before you post anything again.
| Listen, "The more natural the syntax, the more productive the
| engineers."  Do argue on this point.  Argue on whether Lisp is more
| natural.

people have been looking for quite some time, Sin-Yaw.  go away, now.

if you think big enough, you never have to do it
