  Geez, for a few days, now, we had an abuse-free zone here because you
  nutjobs seemed to be able to focus on something other than attacking me,
  but I guess it is impossible for lunatics like you and Thomas Bushnell to
  actually discuss anything at all unless I agree with your point of view.
  Why is this?  Why is it so goddamn important to you that I agree with you
  that you stop thinking and stop discussing _anything_ if I say something
  contrary to your opinions?  Talk about not handling disagreement, guys!

  So can you guys _please_ seek some professional help to get over your
  disturbing dependency on having my approval on everything you say?  If I
  think you are lunatics, accept that this is my well-founded opinion from
  observing your behavior towards me and just get on with your lives and do
  something _intelligent_ to make me change my mind if it bothers you so
  much, OK?  If I should happen to think you are a Scheme freak, what _is_
  it to you?  Why does it even _matter_ than you fall in this category?  I
  mean, I did not think about you at all (why should I?  you are nothing
  more than an unimportant lunatic who are unable to listen to what I say),
  yet you feel somehow "labeled" and "hurt" out of some paranoid delusion
  that you were included in some negative attitude you saw.  Dude.  Chill.

  Why _are_ you guys so upset about what I think?  If it is true and you do
  not like it, fighting my _saying_ it does not help you at all, it only
  tells people that you are unwilling to _think_ about it and prefer to act
  all emotional about it and think that pouting or behaving like babies who
  have soiled themselves will change my mind.  It won't.  Deal with it.

  GET BACK ON TRACK and discuss whatever has relevance to you _and_ this
  forum, will you?  If I am the most important thing you have to discuss,
  there is something _seriously_ wrong with you.  Get the hell over it!

  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.
