  I "wrote" it using Emacs Lisp.  For each line I evaluated

(loop for i from ?V to ?Z do (insert (format "#\\%c " i)))

  You could have accomplished the same thing with #., but I think the code
  looks a lot better this way.

  Unfortunately, I typed in lower-case letters in one of the lines.

  I have added you to my do-not-help list.

  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
