I haven't said that he hasn't done more work than I. I just wanted to point
out that this kind of game is childish. Well, if you want to play at that
level, do it yourself.

Who decides what the correct side is? You? That's only viable for your
business. Maybe you should read a Rosa Luxembur cite and respect the
different opinion of other people instead of flaming them? Criticize my work
in a proper way, if you like (or being able to). But going for a witch hunt
should be under your level, eh? ;)

don't like. Interesting.

I just press "g" to reply to list mails. Other people (like Steve) are
capable of configuring their MUAs in that way that they don't get CCs. Maybe
you doing something wrong then? Please ask those people how you can rid off
of off-list CC replies.
Please note that year 2005 has come to an end and
the year 2005 is now - even in my mail address!
