  You are so goddamn egoistic that you cannot even imagine that there are
  more people who benefit from articles than yourself.  Christ almighty, I
  have never seen such a selfish person before.  Everything is about you
  and you do not shed one microsecond of brain time on others.  /Why/ would
  I want to help anyone who is that selfish?

  *laugh*  Your selfishness and obsession with yourself is record-braking.

  How on earth could such a moronic stunt on your part /punish/ me?  What,
  precisely, do you think your reading my articles is to me?  What on earth
  do /you/ post your articles here for?  Wat would it mean to you to be
  kill-filed by someone?  To have someone tell you in public that they had
  kill-filed you?  It is hard to take someone seriously who is so incredibly
  self-absorbed as to think that not being read by you can be used as a
  threat when the purpose of the threat is to force someone to /help/ you
  when you cannot behave well and stick to the point yourself.  The sheer
  magnitude of the arrogance you have to possess explains your problems
  with Common Lisp extremely well.

  You do not have to kill-file me to avoid getting help from me.  I am not
  going to help such a selfish, conceited person no matter whether you read
  my other articles or not.  Neither do I think anyone else should help you.
