Who said "must" ?? Not me, pal.
What is the word for that ... ?? Mis-representation, perhaps.

So getting back to it :

Feel free to "objectively" show us why types *tend* to "rely on similar hierarchical taxonomies (or at least DAG taxonomies)" .

We can always rely on you to kill yourself with your own sword as quickly as the next line of text. You never disappoint (LOL) .

LOL !!! Classic topmind muppetry.

Posting rants to the wrong person altogether. Rather than admitting the embarrassing truth, then tries to selectively edit the entire posting to prevaricate.

So what do we have :

Funny isn't it, that JOG in his reply had no problems understanding what I was telling him (or replying accordingly) .

So, to send you on your way, you non english-understanding muppet ...

Here is the ref to my posting (in its *entirety* ) to JOG :

Please feel free to show us how your silly rant contributes to anything in that posting. Just to help you, there are two points of note in the posting, denoted "1" and "2" .

1 tells JOG *who* invented inheritance in OOP. 2 tells JOG *why* (according to the inventors) inheritance came to be.

>>>Did I say anything objectively wrong?

>>We await your reply to #1 with interest.

Ah, the other classic topmind muppetry : demand something "objective" of someone, but scuttles away quietly into a dark corner when the same is demanded of him.
