Hi Ron Johnson

  That is very rude to say on a public mailing list. I agree that everyone
is entitled to their opinion. May be you are right and may be you are wrong.
But this could potentially result in flame wars. May be you meant it in a
funny way! But this is taking it too far. Not everyone might take it as you
intended it to.

    BTW, I am not british and I would have written this same email if you
were to express your opinions about some other country. The point is
debian-user is about helping Debian users and this kind of name calling is
uncalled for.

    I hope you understand and I am very sorry if you are offended by this
