I misunderstood the goal, but I knew that yours wouldn't solve the goal. :)
Typical Randal. Hey, Randal, have you ever thought about just acknowledging someone else's effort without taking a swipe at the bloke afterwards? I mean, really, how many times do we have to put up with you acting like the big dog and pretending that no one else has anything else to offer?
I've read through some of your posts here and I have never seen you compliment anyone. On this one, you could have just admitted you were wrong and complimentd "ovid" on his code, or just admitted that you were wrong. Period. No, your ego wouldn't allow that. You had to cut him down.
If you even remotely care about why you have problems with people, perhaps you should wonder why you cannot be bothered to acknowledge anyone. You know why the witch hunt at Intel and your felony conviction happened? It is not because you were wrong. It looks like you were trying to act in the company's best interest. It's because you are so arrogant that people want to take you down a peg.
Try admitting that someone besides Randal has something worthwhile to contribute.
Oh, and that boycott thing is typical Randal BS. Grow up.
I'll say we have two possibilities here: You're right or you are wrong.
If you're wrong, knock it off.
If you're right, this is not an appropriate place for attacks like this. I for one would prefer to see this be a place where people can freely exchange ideas without vicious flames like this. Please, take this elsewhere.
