Frankly, your comments have more errors than your PL example.

You may use any language you desire, in any manner you desire. But if you don't follow the basic rules of the language you are using, your desire will remain unrequited. If you post to usenet your misunderstanding of the rules in an arrogant manner, you are lucky you don't get flamed. I think you are lucky here because your ignorance is so obvious people just think you are still inexperienced enough to excuse you.
