in reply to Java vs. Perl from the CB (no CB log included)

I have to agree to merlyn fully. This is one of the situations where I don't like the american way of "feel free of anything to do you want", when the following "unless you could hurt someone's personality, body, equity, rights, mind ..." was omitted
Sorry for saying it that rude but I've grown up in the GDR which was a totalitarian system.
If you tell something to someone in good mind you don't want him to go down the street alike "hey folks look and read what this person said".
Quite easy way to use cites to destroy your reputation :-(
So I don't see any reason to discuss the freedom of mind and the freedom to trust anyhow. Would you like someone who was listening in a pub what you saifd to your friend to give that to the news???
Well if, so better point out that you are a narciss.

Have a nice day
All decision is left to your taste

    I appreciated the opportunity to see such an interesting debate and I would have missed it had I not been in time to see the posting.

    I can appreciate people not wanting their words struck in stone due to the topic being somewhat controversial. But the discussion was lively and the arguments were well-formed, if we fired up a meditation with the same subject it would not be nearly as good in content.

    If vroom does take off jptxs's points I shall blow 7 points, tomorrow voting for jptxs's things and to prove that I am redressing an inbalance I percieve I won't even read the postings! (at least not until afterwards).

    I am certain that the points will stay as whilst this was a faux pas it is not a punishable one.

    It is a shame that the post was not okayed as it was very interesting.

    Brother Frankus.
