in reply to Chapter 714: The Long Chapter
Well spoken !
I've stayed out of the princepawn discussion for a long
time since I saw no good coming out of the personal arguments
flinging back and forth (and I only saw worse coming if I'd
entered the discussion). But I've always found princepawn,
together with mt2k, a bit annoying but still a part
of the monastery. t0mas compared princepawn to Don Quixote,
and I guess it's what I admired, the ability to always
come back and try again (and even gain XP in the process).
Every time somebody leaves the monastery in a spectacular
way (Abigail, mt2k and now
princepawn), this should be a warning sign, as "we"
(as the community) have proven unable to integrate/tolerate
them. And I want to see the Monastery as a community
(and not a faction), so my goal still is to provide
help (and not salvation) even for the heathen - of course, some heathen
get easier help from me than others, but I'm no saint (yet),
so I'm allowed to have stains on my halo.
I always remember the rules of the Fidonet programming
forum asmx86 (x86 assembly language),
which help me stay calm in the face of ignorance everywhere :
- Nobody in this forum is required to give answers to questions.
- Nobody in this forum is required to believe anything
answered to him.
