Y'know, it's fine if you think that Bruce's mail was inappropriate for
the list, and there's nothing wrong with saying so; but claiming that a
message that isn't selling anything is UCE, and attempting to enforce
a member of the community an advertising policy that daily goes
unenforced against thousands of more deserving souls, just makes you
sound like
an asshole and an idiot.

How does an asshole sound, anyway?

It sounds like, "Pffftthhhbbb", "Grrrhhhfff", or sometimes even,

Give the nice guy little slack! I mean Bruce has done a LOT for Linux and Open Source. He was Debian leader few years back and worked hard for the project. So why to nickpick him? There seems to be severall type of Linux people. Ones who do something and ones who seems to get satisfaction to harrass the first group for little misteps, which are unavoidable when one really do something. Grow up.

I won't post again for this list because it is not right plase to discuss this. Just my 2 cents. And I sure someone will point out that my english suck :-)
