I was referring to your own post to my "DAM approval wait time"
outburst. Before this email, I had made some attempt at contributing
to the discussion with two posts in the little free time I have.

I no longer write articles or editorials for Debian Planet and I have
never done or never will start a debate on a mailing list as a flimsy
excuse for writing an article. Like you and everyone else here, I too
am entitled to form an opinion of my own and be able to express them
in a public forum.

I have answered already this question. I package and maintain software
for Debian GNU/Linux.

Aren't you deliberately inflaming me right now?

Thanks to the silent treatment I am receiving from the DAM and barrage
of abuse directed at me from people such as yourself and others in
#debian-devel I really do question if my participation in the Debian
community is respected or my mere presence is welcome. That thread was
just one of those moments when I have come close to just walking away
from it all.

You have some nerve there Jim flaunting your arrogance like that. I
have tried to reply to you in a rational and polite manner, but I have
come to the conclusion that no matter what I say or do, you will
continue to harass me in public. You have no right to judge me and I
will no longer entertain your perverted sense of enjoyment in
attempting to humiliate and belittle people in public.

Good day.
