You know, when you wrote this I was quite surprised I admit.  So the 
first thing I did was download the latest Merc code to check and see why 
you would say this.  Know what I found out?  Olist, rlist, mlist, DON'T 
exist there.  There's not even a similar function!  So what the hell are 
you talking about?  Which source are you looking at?

Second, how many freaking ways are there to go through a list and print 
them out?   This is the most idiotic flame I've seen in years.  Gee, must 
be hard for all those programmers out there to do the same thing I wrote, 
and you know what, I bet they would have source quite similar.  Maybe I 
should copyright it!  Don't you have better things to do that to falsely 
accuse people?

Third, if you think silly code like I posted is enough to give someone an 
ego trip, then learn how to program.

Lastly, I apologize to the rest of the group for flaming, I just don't 
like being accused of silly things.  I think I'll remember to keep code 
personal and let people email me for it, so I can weed people out.
