Marshall, why are you sucking up to Bob? Why is he allowed to post whatever trash he wants, yet you come running to his rescue?

Look at Andrew's effort as a tongue in cheek or even polite way of saying "Bob stop posting trash".

And I'm sure Andrew isn't the only one wanting to express that sentiment.

And this you provide as a good example of quality content. That's the worst definition of OOP I've ever seen "Large unpredictable state machines", yeah right.

These newsgroups were way more polite and informative before you guys showed up so don't gloat about any "well written, cogent" content. It's just filthy trash! Received on Mon Jun 26 2006 - 22:11:36 CDT
