Why do you ask a question that I answer plain and clear in the same
message you're replying to? The answer is NO!

The whether or not was never an issue. Why does everyone try to put it
like I was somehow against pure LFS?

It seems like I'm in some kind of weird nightmare where everyone wants to
twist my words around. Everyone's talking about the word "pure". In my
original message there are just 2 words in 1 sentence that hint at the
fact that I don't like it. In my other message it's just 2 sentences. I
would have dropped the issue and wouldn't even have mentioned the hate,
discrimination stuff had not Gerard explicitly asked about the nature of
my concerns.

Dammit, people. I don't have any strong feelings about the word "pure". 
I don't like. I said so. No one agrees. Okay. No problem. Forget it.

All that I really ever cared for was the AC bashing issue. That's why I
put it into my Subject line. That's why my initial message in this thread
talks 99% about this issue. That's why you should all stop trying to fight
a flamewar with me and instead should focus on this issue. All that I ask,
is that people around here stop dissing Alan Cox, because it throws a bad
light on LFS. Do me this favor and I'm happy.


This sentence no verb.
