Like it or not, you need to be able to cooperate with your fellow developers, despite their potential biases, likes and dislikes. Can't get along with particular folks? Then move on and do something more productive, or learn to work with them nicely. Complaining more won't help--we have already heard the arguments enough times over the last few years. We get that you can't work with certain developers. That's a problem you have not made sufficient efforts to either resolve or avoid. There was never a need to let things get this bad, but you did and are continuting to do so with this huge spam flood. Deal with it and carry on with life. Life isn't perfect; the rest of us accept that we don't always get our own way (irrespective of the rights and wrongs of the matter in question), and move on from that. > Sure, mail is not the best media, let's find something else, but the > status quo is not acceptable to me, despite all those whose sole > argument is "YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT IT AND LIVE WITH IT". That's just the way things really and truly are. That's the reality, whether you like it or not. If you want to change it, you need to make a big effort to rectify the damage you have caused to your relations with your fellow developers. Is this possible at this stage? I don't know. It's largely up to you to do it if you can. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
