Re: [awansink@ke.com.au: Re: Isn't a kde version of abiword illegal?]

For Christ's sake, will you stop taking things so personally.  Just 
for that I will make this personal.  You are one of the worst kind of 
mailing list readers.  You a) come to the party late b) think you 
have to reply to every message c) think you are involved in the 
conversation when your not.

I am not referring to you in these posts.  Did you offer me advice 
about the legalities of what I was doing at the start of this thread. I 
think not.  All you did is boast about your licensing skills and take 
the things I wrote about my defacto advisors to heart.

Please read the complete thread before posting.  There is nothing 
worse than stale comments.
