| Your recent responses to my questions consist of three parts:
| (i) pretty informative and interesting
| (ii) breathtakingly naive (as though I had not been struggling with OO for
| years; as though I had not read about it;)
| (iii) plainly offensive.

  being able to handle information productively when it runs counter to
  one's existing beliefs is perhaps the defining attribute of an operative
  intelligence, since it defines how we deal with information from which we
  can either learn or recoil, if we don't ignore it as "not grasped".

  there is ample evidence that you lack this defining attribute and there
  are few redeeming qualities to your many _really_ stupid postings in this
  newsgroup.  had you actually been interested in the topic at hand, you
  would also have been willing to learn whatever was learnable here -- yet
  this is where you fail miserable, evidently on _purpose_.

  I wonder why people even bother to reply to you with anything technically
  useful that you are clearly _unwilling_ to grasp unless you already agree
  with it, in which case you insult people for being naive.

  please, go annoy people someplace else with your breathtaking stupidity.
