* Erann Gat
| Indeed it is, but I didn't choose it, Erik did.

  Sigh, this stupid blame game again.  Every single word in the English
  language has been "chosen" by someone else at some time or another, so if
  someone like Erann Gat needs to disassociate himself from what he does,
  he picks one of those people and says _he_ did not choose the word --
  that other guy did.  In the eyes of someone like Erann Gat, that somehow
  means that he is no longer responsible for what he says or does at all.
  I find such behavior very, very peculiar.  Who could possibly be fooled
  by this _extremely_ annoying game?  I must assume that the only purpose
  is indeed to annoy everyone.  Fine, you succeed, Erann Gat.  How long do
  you have to keep it going this time?  Get a life or something.

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
