Re: debian services and responsibility
I would like to thank Jim, Nate and many others who took the oppurtunity
to say "THANKS!" to Brainfood in my moment of frustration. Because of my
deadline committments I haven't been able to respond to all of you
Debianers, THANK YOU! Every Debianer helps make this amazing experiment
possible and that is why we keep doing it. It's great to recieve some
positive feedback from all of you.
On to Branden's email:

Your last email had a considerably more personable tone.

Regrettable I agree, but not suprising.

Forgive me, but I think you are back-pedaling because of the bad
reaction you recieved.

I don't think that was the case. I think you've changed gears.
