Agreement in principle.

JFTR: In Java, I often recommend to beginners, that they should qualify
every method call with it's receiver, even it is "this", just to make it
explicit, that there is no such thing as global procedures. But Java is
another world. ;-)

Could you tell me, please, where I can find this message? I searches in 
the defaultBehaviour slot of the lobby, but it seems to be somewhere 
better hidden.
