I'd like to know what sort of person that Farah was, growing up.

I wouldn't mind betting that I'm like a lot of slashdotters - was physically bullied during high school by athletes such as Farah, to the point that the thought of going to school made me physically ill and I contemplated suicide to escape the (seemingly) never-ending physical and mental abuse.

I'm disgusted by Trolls too, don't get me wrong. But I want to know if Farah is "without sin" (clearly he's not, at least in Gillard's case) before I give him an ounce of sympathy for "being bullied."

I had some good experiences with their lasers, especially in big government departments.

Of course, I was the contracted Lexmark service agent, so my good experiences were in being paid to work on them. ;-)

(To be fair, they were a decent workhorse. That said, they were all equipped with PostScript, so I didn't have to deal with driver issues.)

Basic is a high level languish. APL is a high level anguish.
