Well, I'm glad you're never hostile to anyone else either, Adam.
I did not say those posts were written here (they were blog posts linked

debating, I was just cleaning up old email and I ran across this, and
just felt I needed to finish that. Alright?
I am also unsubscribing because the bug reports (are they part of
debian-devel?) are too much of a distraction.
It is also pretty remarkable that by their own actions the ones who want
to stifle a debate or cut short a chain of messages often act in such a
way as to further a new chain of messages to arrive, or arise. By their
rudeness and hostility they often prompt more responses when that was
never the intent of the original poster. Bug reports made out of a bug
report system fall into that category, where they give rise to heated
debate when such was never the intent of the reporter; he or she merely
wanted to pass something along. A report of something that's not working
is then met by hostile responses that question everything that has been
said, when the intent was clearly to provide support, not defamation.
