Not a stupid question.
REBOL is not OO in the sense that you think of with Smalltalk, Eiffel,
Java, Ruby, etc. It has "objects", but they are used as prototypes to
create new objects. There is no concept of "class" in REBOL and
objects don't have any private/protected members by default (though
you can create them if you really want to and think it's worth the
REBOL's approach isn't better or worse, but it is definitely
different, and not strict OO according to the three main criteria.
