  Watch his behavior when he is asked to consider other options than he
  brings from his C++ background.  Watch his _very_ strong need to go
  personal when he is challenged.

  It _is_ his fault he fails to recognize that he does so after several
  people try to communicate to him beyond his "I had this with C++, so I
  need excatly the same thing in every other environment" stance.

  I have actually tried to get this stupid troll to think beyond his very
  limited vision of what he needs.  His hostility in response to requests
  for a deeper understanding of what he is after is indicative of a lack of
  willingness to think about what he is really after, and _that_ suggests a
  permanently limited vision, probably by will, and that is precisely what
  a troll is.

  However, _you_ are free to give him all he "needs", Coby.  Do not expect
  him to be satisfied with anything, _ever_.  Trolls never are, remember?

  Christ, Coby, grow the hell up!
