Eh? Culture? Look, your anti-spam measures offend *me personally*. This
isn't a "Debian culture" thing. I reserve the right to be annoyed at having
to jump through hoops to get email to others with whom I work. And judging
by the other responses in this thread, I'm not alone.

You weren't attacked on your first post. Look carefully again at the first
reply. It was very polite. It was not an attack. *Your* response to that
post, however, was far from friendly. It was bristling with self-righteous
indignation. After that, it was all downhill.

There is no "Debian" in this incident. There are just a handful of
individual members of this list who were annoyed at your anti-spam policy
sig. I'm willing to bet it would have been just as unwelcome in any other
random non-trivial sized group of people who are supposed to be cooperating
together online on a project.
