Lets go back and look at what he said.  "I find it strange why people can't go buy a nice book or two on how to program in C before doing it."  Well, out of your whole contrediction only the letter "C" is relavant to what he said.

I agree with this, there are some very stupid people out there that should open there eyes before talking.  Bandwidth!  HAHA!  Precious, don't hurt the bandwidth, HAHA!

Well he can stop speaking for me.  True, if they can't figure it out there morons.  Not spending the time is your opinion of what he/she is doing.  He/she may have stayed up 12 hours trying to work an "if" statement that never came out right for them and your saying they don't spend time.  There just stupid, not lazy.

Uhhh, ok.  I don't know what you want to do about this.  There has been talk about spliting the list, moderation, making it a newsgroup, but guess whats getting done?  A whole lot of nothing, talk about lazy.  This is just pretty pathetic.  Think we could all do something or gosh, heavens no, not this, deal with it?  I don't recall any newbie EVER forceing me to read his mail.  Then again my will power is a little higher then most of yours.  Now I know this whole reply will get nothing done and you will all just end up fighting with me in the end.  Thats okay, I just keep you around for entertainment.  The little peons amuse me when they bicker.
