Steve ranted. Unfortunately, he had good reasons to do so. Kevin is adding
noise to the list. He tries to answer even when he doesn't have the answer
to the question. He's welcome here to continue to learn but he shouldn't
answer for the sake of it. His last contribution to the "sex vs gender
thread" shows that he's prompt to answer on subjects which are not
technical and even off-topic.

Fwiw, I already told him once by private mail that many of his
contributions were not matching the expected technical level of the list,
and after some private discussion, obviously he's not doing anything bad
on purpose but his envy to participate should be directed more to learning
some real technical stuff than to posting on -devel.
