[REBOL] Re: R: Re: Correct Behaviour? Was False = 2 ????

From: jeff:rebol at: 3-Jul-2001 8:48

An old argument where no one seems to come away satisfied. I think the reason why it becomes such a frustrating argument is because the nature of the argument and the goals people have in arguing. These are the goals people usually have going into the indexing argument (or really many of these kinds of language definitional arguments): 1. Express desire for different behavior in REBOL. 2. Demonstrate inconsistencies in REBOL. 3. Express preference for current REBOL behavior. 4. Demonstrate consistency in REBOL. On all four points people can successfully deliver arguments. Points 3 and 4 are favored by the status quo which is grist for the mill of advocates of points 1 and 2. Woops.. maybe that should be the "advocates of points 0 and 1" arguing against "points 2 and 3" of the status quo".. anyhow I'm getting confused ... (-: -jeff
