Re: Policy Statement on Address Space Allocations
| Did you find a four leaf clover after the snow melted, or find a lucky | horse-shoe in the fields today? ^^^^^^^^ No, but you got the first seven letters right. | What did those in the Dark Middle Ages do when branded | a heretic by the religious zealots ? | Answer: | Most of them were put to the flame and ridiculed. Ahh, the good old days. Nowadays people who think that they deserve the label religious heretic have to go all out to invite ridicule upon themselves. Sad, really. There must be easier ways for people to get abuse, contempt, and other forms of negative attention, than spending so much effort trying to make people who are well-intentioned and generally well-respected look like bad guys or ignoramuses, while telling us about what books you happen to be reading, or where you're flying off to next week, or what your second cousin twice removed had for lunch yesterday, as if people here are such snobs that they will think more highly of you if you are reading something by Vidal or whoever, or are making large amounts of money as a consultant, or have a diary detailing the history of network XYZ, or live near Dulles Airport. Well, maybe some do. Who knows? But anyway, although I don't think very much of you and your postings, almost exclusively because of your apparent need to trump up your own talents by disparaging others', don't count on me to suggest removing you from any open mailing lists, publically or privately. Maybe it's my sense of humour, or a sadistic streak a kilometre wide, but I *enjoy* seeing people make absolute fools of themselves in public. And you, you're practically Monty Python's Flying Internet. Sean.
