I am not even sure what you are trying to say. If I were a member of the cabal, then you would talk to me differently? If I were a member of the cabal, then you would insult me no more than you expect me to insult you? I find it somewhat disturbing that the cabal even exists. Is Debian a two-class society? Many people are by far more experienced with the inner workings of Debian, and thus they hold positions of influence. However, all the cabal does it prevent other people, who did not have the chance of building up the Debian imperium, from gaining this experience so that they may one day step up the ladder and take over the influential positions. Stop taking this personal, for $DEITY's sake, aj. There are people who want information from you, and those people have a right to this information because it is *our* project, not yours.
