Stack with the same name loop

[Huff] and [sigh]! I don't know. I mean, I just don't get it. I don't get
how LiveCode get defended as being people that care when they leave
something as *basic as this unrepaired for EIGHT....TEEN....YEARS !?!

I have this thing. I don't know if it's just part of my BPD/EUD or the
48years I've spent on the wrong side of this planet (the outside), but I
tend to say
    People always 'SEEM' nice. But in 'real - life' they're just people -
just like everyone else - bumbling masses of meat - looking out for
themselves - putting on the good show of caring and loving and kind -
making the appearance of someone trustworthy - but every... single...
one... is beyond trust because, like everyone else, they too have
themselves to deal with - and that sucks - for everyone!

I got told by Heather just recently to remember that LC10, that giant
promise just out of reach (this is of course in relation to html5
deployment, that noose around my neck), is just around the corner. What the
heck is that supposed to mean? It's that kind of crap that causes me not to
trust! The next millennia is 'just around the damned corner' for crying out
loud. What comfort can I get from that? I pass that crap on to my clients
and see how far that gets me? Don't worry, we'll be able to do what you've
asked in 'just around the corner'

But we keep taking it because, well, we've got no choice! We've bumbled
down this path, and all other roads are too far behind to go back to. We
can't change, LC can't change, nothing will change. We're all locked into
this perpetual loop 'til the end. Just like the haiku that the
Save/Purge/Cancel dialogue presents to us if we try to upgrade or reversion
our script.

The only way to get out of the loop is to force quit and start over.
