One can not guess if somebody is willing to accept private mails or not...

Hi Matthew and Bill
Just dont: Anthony Towns seems to find such private mails much more
disturbing than public criticisms.
In the early 2006, I complained privately about the sarcastic tone of
one of the answers he made to me on -devel, and I guess that I hurted
him more strongly than if I had done this publicly, because I received
insults on his blog in return.
(However, I think that the signal-noise ratio on -devel could be
strongly raised if at least part of the discussions would be conduced in
private with the people who have no objection against it.)
Have a nice day,
(and please answer privately, of course)
