  You have an obligation to a public forum to do your best.  Mistakes are
  certainly allowed, but when you start with the assumption that you are
  correct and that somebody else is wrong and you do not even need to
  bother to check the _references_, it is not _mistakes_ that are not
  allowed, but sloppiness and laziness and the arrogance that come with
  them.  And drop the stupid bitterness -- just do better.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
