  Anyone wonder why I get pissed off at the fucking morons who find faults
  with every goddamn thing I do?  TRY LIGHTENING UP, DICKWEED!  It was an
  attempt at light-hearted humor, although it was certainly at the expense
  of some of the most anal-retentive bunch of stuck-ups I know, who quote
  chapter and verse at people who argue about their inflammatory, useless
  desire to included in the Lisp family ever after they left, voluntarily,
  and who cannot even write well enough to communicate what they mean in
  simple, unambiguous English.

  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.
