  I thought it was a fairly obvious attempt at the kind trolling we have
  become used to from people who have learned Scheme from some textbook
  that failed to teach iteration and recursion as morally equivalent.
  Sadly, some of those are unable to understand how deeply annoying their
  trolling attempts are, convinced as they are of the moral superiority of
  recursion and of its "intrinsic elegance" and other such nonsense obvious
  to anyone who has not been similarly brainwashed.

  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.

  Post with compassion:
