Thankyou. I was just about to tag the other two and reply to them until
I read this mail, and realised that it said about everything that I
wanted to say. I don't really have any issues with Eray, apart from
purely technical disagreements on semantics, but he was a flat-out prick
in response to a straight-out statement of fact from myself. He pissed
me off and got the response that he IMHO deserved. I'd deliver that to
him IRL, and I'd deliver that to a day when I *wasn't* feeling like
utter shit.

Yes, I agree with this completely.
