read his previous message whining about not wanting to be forced
to support non-free, and you might understand why i said he was
representing himself as a 'fucking nutcase'.

note that i didn't call him a 'fucking nutcase' (because i don't think
he IS one) - i said he was making himself look like one, in the hope of
shocking him into realising what a stupid corner he was backing himself
into in the heat of the moment.
