Subject: Re: less flames, fewer flames, or by any other name, ...

Of course you must, but I suggest people search for your name in the newsgroup archives, wherever they have them, and see if you have not displayed a serious hangup with me, and just about everyone else who have had something sensible to say about optimization. | With a less chronic offender than Erik Naggum, you mite have a point. You are speaking from your personal experience, and you have shown that nobody else can have valid experiences. Hence your problems. | Yes, which is what killfiles are for. I stuck him in shortly after he | insisted that optimization should be done first and got personal about | it. Couple of keystrokes, much nicer ng. First, that's not what I said, much less insisted on, and I didn't get personal about optimization, I got personal about your very personal insults because you weren't willing really to _discuss_ how you view optimization. And as it turned out, you got _no_ backing for you views, with many contrary opinions, until people gave up on you. My error was not to give up, but actually try to _talk_ to you. I should never have done that. | In my experience with him, that is extremely wrong. Precisely, in your experience, which has nothing to do with me. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
