My friend, as I statuated, this is not an argument, is a personal thing.
Maybe you like blondes and I like readheads. This dont makes you stupid, as
liking {} dont make me silly.
Im not here on this list to argue about what I like and what I dont like, im
here to learn using LUA efficinetly.  I statuated what I like and what I
dont like, you can do the same, I could not care less.

Ciao, Dan
