I was trying to move forward in the way I would have moved forward if I had to get things done quickly; I was told to stop because things are to be done in public, despite my rationale explaining how I wanted to avoid discussions and be productive. Some days later I am reminded offline that what happened to me should really happen to the ftpmasters: they should be told by some authoritative person to do things in public so that everyone can participate. Then I wrote an email, which, I give you that, was below the waisteline, but look at the effect: every constructive post following my initial message came from people wondering what ftpmasters are and what they are doing. You, vorlon, and HE, however, have nothing better to do than to save yourself by complaining how insulting I am and how much we all suck and so on. Why not assume that I am simply socially incompetent, be confident about it and ignore my bashing, but rather address the points raised by others, instead of sticking your head in the sand and complaining that we are all too offensive? -- Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list! .''`. martin f. krafft <firstname.lastname@example.org> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, user, and author `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
