This is where you are at fault, Craig. If you feel someone is a fool, or an
annoying fool, then you should either make your point, and show CLEARLY that
your point is the right one. You should do so without insults, and without any
comments that would lead to an argument rather than debate on an issue.
Further, you harm Debian by going off topic to make your opinion of a PERSON on
the list, rather than keeping it off the list. If you feel the need to insult
someone, then PLEASE, do it in private e-mails so it doesn't get out of hand.
