  -1; Obvious troll, but poorly conceived for the following reasons:

  There is no discussion of methods tried and why they are
insufficient/wrong.

  Lazy evaluation is not discussed at any length.

  C is mentioned, rather than C++ indicating that the poster has serious
knowledge of computer programming and is not simply a high school drop out
who took one AP Comp Sci class.

  Analysis of the headers indicates the mail was sent from a NAT'd host
running behind a linux router, suggesting either that the individual is the
child of a parent with some skill in managing networks or that the
individual himself has skill in this area.  However, the former option can
be ruled out due to the previous point.  Anyone with such knowledge should
be full aware of netiquette and would thus have noticed the ongoing thread
on this topic.

  Conclusions: Recommend immediate targetting of poster with orbital laser
array and complete obliteration at the earliest possible opportunity.
