The following in no way expresses sympathy and/or praise for you. I am
deeply saddened by the events referred to as they seem symptomatic of
the open source community as a whole at the moment, the entire sense of
community has been lost.
When I first became involved with Linux some 10 years ago it was not
unusual to be exchanging pleasantries, information, help, assistance,
whatever at all hours of the night and day with people all over the
world. Now the whole thing seems to have become infested by twats with
large egos and severe personality disorders, worryingly perhaps this
just reflects the current shambolic nature of society as a whole. It is
also not the first time that this project has demonstrated such inner
problems, it took an iron hand from Gerard to sort out last time.
PEOPLE! For the sake of the Project, the community, and the human race:
GET YOUR FREAKING ACT TOGETHER!!!
