I have absolutely no problem communicating with James, in fact I'm doing so right now. Nothing to do with this issue, just two developers communicating with each other. I strongly suspect there are many others in Debian who also have no problems communicating with James. I expect it's because we say things like "James, have you got a minute?" and "thanks for your help" instead of "[YOU] ARE [TOO] LAZY TO WORK AND [TOO] LEET TO COMMUNICATE WITH SECOND-CLASS DDs. [I WANT YOU TO] BE REMOVED FROM [YOUR] POSITIONS" Scott -- Have you ever, ever felt like this? Had strange things happen? Are you going round the twist?
