The complaint was not "I don't like this, and I don't want to have to read
it"; that's silly. I believe it was "I don't like this, and I don't want
people to form a mistaken impression of Lua based on this person's smearing".
My reaction, incidentally, is that someone who posts opinions that poor is
going to lose any competent readers he has fairly quickly, so I'd say
"ignore him, he doesn't matter". There are other reasonable reactions,
but "stop reading it" misses the point entirely.
