This is still how many people (me included) do perceive it. Moreover, 
the fact that the opinion that Peter expressed is widespread or not 
among the DDs is also irrelevant to the discussion.

The discussion is about what options we have, and the the GR will be 
responsible to see which opinion is the most shared among the DD 
comunity. Until the vote, anybody can express his views opinions, even 
if it is a minority position ... that is what a public debate really is 
about.

With that in mind, beeing a DD or not is a completely irrelevant 
information, and reminding is, whichever the original intention of that 
reminder was, is rude and inappropriate. That's not the first tham that 
aj does such reminders[1], and especiall beeing the DPL[2], I find that 
disturbing.


Regards,

 [1] remember the ugly java thread ...

 [2] that does not mean that it's ok to do such remarks not beeing the
     DPL, it means that having such words as the DPL makes it worse.
