[REBOL] Re: /View As A Product

From: robbo1mark:aol at: 19-Feb-2001 11:26

Jeff, Sorry I do not want to preach, sorry if it has come across that way. Yes I do feel strongly about the benefits of "My beliefs" but I would to think Iam tolerant of other "creeds" as well. I promise I will try to be a less "pushy" list member at this excellent forum, it just frustrates me that I see various people making the same comments and complaints again & again but don't feel they can do anything about it, but they can, but hey we've been over that already. My humble apologies, hope Iam everyones friend again! Mark Dickson In a message dated Mon, 19 Feb 2001 11:12:18 AM Eastern Standard Time, [jeff--rebol--net] writes: << Howdy, Mark:

No, you're just being a pushy religious person. You'd prefer to use the forum that REBOL Tech. provides to proselytize your religion, instead, of say, posting a cool script, helping a newbie, that sort of thing.. Just because your religion is totally righteous in your eyes doesn't mean you have to beat everyone over the head with it day after day. Some people may not, for what ever reason, particularly agree with your creed, regardless how correct your creed is. The scrupulous and tactful are considerate enough to grant their fellow humans freedom from religion. If not, then crusaders away! :-) Now then, I don't know if it counts for a halo of some kind in your religion, but I, personally, have submitted C code for inclusion in Gnu Emacs, contributed open source code to the dict project (a project, if you are unaware, which was founded by one of the original Linux Developers, Rick Faith). Of course, I've also produced piles of royalty free and, in fact, license free REBOL scripts for the enjoyment and use of any who might enjoy them or find them useful. So, you don't need to preach to me about open source. Well, I do hope my message here does not offend you, Mark Dickson, but I also hope it's not just another vehicle for you to launch into another sermon. (-: Somehow I knew that if anyone argued with your means, you'd only respond by arguing their ends. :-) Cheers and all the best-- Jeff
