    However, using two "e"'s is perfectly alright, right Zanee?

    Joe, it is something akin to "lese majeste" to refer to an Esteemed Section
    Leader in a familiar manner, as I did. And, all things considered, I really
    don't want to be familiar with the Esteemed Team Leader, in any case.

    You see, Mike, you and I are just mere peasants, serfs, so it makes no difference
    how an Esteemed Section Leader refers to us. I seem to maybe remember a "Joey"
    or two, somewhere along the line, as well, but that might have been from
    some other Cheerleader.NET (They all look the same to me, you know, all those
    Cheerleaders.NET <G>).

    It would have been even a worse offense had I referred to the Esteemed Section
    Leader as "inZane", because that would have reflected on his mental state,
    so I am certainly glad I didn't do it. That would have been as inconsiderate
    as telling someone here that they needed to "take their meds" and calm down,
    wouldn't it? Seems to me I also remember some Cheerleader.NET saying that
    to you and I thought it quite inconsiderate. I was surprised no Esteemed
    Section Leader told them to "take it to the off.ramp". Then again, maybe
    it _was_ an Esteemed Section Leader and he just couldn't bring himself to
    give himself such an order?

    This is a newsgroup. Any opinions drawn are due to ones postings. If you
    want to consider yourself a serf, go ahead. But don't infer opinions that
    haven't been publicly stated.

    For someone who's accusing people of being derogatory it's kind of
    hypocritical going on about this cheerleader nonsense.

    For someone who just can't stop praising to the skies an unproven beta product,
    it's kind of hypocritical to go on about it being hypocritical to call 'em
    as one sees 'em. Just as it was for someone who's obsessed with objects,
    an Esteemed Section Leader, to go on about it being "silly" to talk about
    the Object-Obsessed, even when referring to people who created a new language
    where even the variables are objects.

    What terminology would you suggest that qualifies for inclusion in this public
    newsgroup? Many other terms that I can think of that aptly describe Cheerleaders.NET
    and the Object-Obsessed are suitable only for the off.ramp.

    I know -- I'll just change from using "Cheerleaders.NET" to using "Deluded.NET".
    Congratulations, former Cheerleader, you've just been appropriately renamed.

    For being an unproven beta it's pretty **** good. Any claims I make about it
    are based on actual experience with it, which is more than can be said about
    you and the rest of your sandbox friends.

    You're calling things based as your biased, clouded mind sees them not based
    on reality.

    You're showing your ignorance. Take a look at most the of the other
    languages currently on the market, and then think about what it means.

    Then take it there.

    Fine. Whatever makes you feel better.
