Mature people take responsibility for their failings instead of looking
around for a scapegoat to blame.  of course, the immature approach could
end up getting you elected President of the USA, so don't take my statement
as encouragement to change your ways.  But if you want to use Squeak
effectively you might learn to criticise constructively and think
positively.  You might end up being happier.  Until then keep flailing
about and avoid mirrors.
