I said this on -private, and I'll say it here -- why is it appropriate
to be an ass on -private, but not on -devel? It's not appropriate
anywhere. That goes for Adrian, and Andrew, and everyone. It also leads
to situations like the present, where it looks like we're doing nothing
to reprimand offensive behavior, because most conversation is happening
on -private, while the original, offensive message is sitting on d-d-a.

If you are upset by how Andrew acted, talk to him rationally, regardless
of whether it's public or private.

If you are *very* upset by how Andrew acted, there is an appropriate and
agreed-to policy for expelling developers. Roger Leigh has mentioned his
interest in seeing this through; contact him.
