Can you please do so now?  There have already been multiple complaints
about your behavior, and yet you persist in personal attacks.

Here is a suggestion.  Before you send any reply, wait a full day.  In
that interval, you might cool down a bit.  You might also find time to
shorten your posts.

I have been contributing to debian-legal for quite some time, and I
can't say that Raul's credibility is going anywhere.  Yours, on the
other hand, is not doing so well.  You make some good arguments, but
shoot yourself in the foot with your incessant personal attacks.  I
would be wary of going to you for advice, since you obviously have
problems controlling your temper.
