On Sun, 2 Jan 2000, Eliezer S. Yudkowsky wrote a nice collection of
words to live by, including:

Ah, but Eliezer, that takes half the fun out of it.

Paraphrasing, "Thou shalt present the opportunity for all to
avoid the scythe of natural selection, but never shirk from the
duty to wield the blade."

For as the brilliant philosopher Forrest Gump once said,
   "Stupid is as stupid does".
