[REBOL] Re: how do I get ampm format for time?

From: gjones05:mail:orion at: 20-Jan-2001 14:38

Mr. Racko, Clearly you seem to be on a mission of some sort. I'll let that be your business. I just joined this discussion list a couple days ago, and my original submission yesterday morning was in response to an email that seemed to have been an original thread. That message simply asked how one might print in the twelve hour format. In trying to learn this language that is new for me, I was contributing in a way that I thought was respectful to the users of the list service. I was unaware that there had apparently been a pre-existing thread that had begun with your challenge. As such, I personally found your submission today to be offensive. Perhaps I am being overly sensitive. Perhaps I am just plain mistaken. But clearly I will be far more reticent to contribute my two coppers. There is a chance that other newcomers may feel similarly, which would be a shame for both the list, as well as, the language. As for a grade, Mr. Racko, you are welcome to give me a plain "F" with no curve for being both an innocent contributing newcomer and not being omniscent. I believe that my contribution was appropriate to the question being asked in this thread. While your mission may be worthwhile, I question your methods. Now please excuse me while I bow out into the very deep background of this discussion list. With respect, - Scott
