That's why I said what I said, I do it because of my paranoia, and I have it because I've seen shit. Being paranoid is kinda foolish.

I agree w/ you and I also said that there's almost no need to create any upvalues in 99.99% of cases. Basically, my comment was "do as I say, not as I do"

P.S. I prob should start fighting _G-paranoia though....
