Well, here we just disagree, don't we? I think that calling people a
"lying piece of shit" and a "worthless low-life bag of pus" is right
near the definition of what it is to be a cad.
I'm not sure we will come to agreement about this, but I don't think
we need to. You can continue to think I'm a lying piece of shit, and
I'll continue to think you're a cad.
I invite you to continue to express your opinions, since they only
serve in my opinion to make clear to everyone what your character is.
> your display of mock-innocence is very boring. you're not even very good at
Well, I may or may not be innocent. I haven't claimed to be.
Actually, I invited people to let me know if they think I'm being
unreasonable. You'll understand if I don't put too much weight on
your opinions, I hope.
I also don't particular care if I'm boring or not. I do seem to have
captivated your attention, for what it's worth.

What do you think of a person who adopts an unprincipled position? Is
that person principled or unprincipled? Or some third possibility?

No, it's wrong to use abusive and hateful language, whether accurately
or inaccurately. This has been explained to you many times, but I'm
happy to continue to repeat it as many times as you ask me.

You seem to want to convince me, which is unlikely to happen. Or are
you trying to convince the onlookers? Please, continue. You only
hurt yourself with each such diatribe. But go ahead, prove it to the
world. Shout your filth from the rooftops!
Don't be surprised when the general negative perception of you only
grows further and further.

Feel free to ignore me.

I don't ignore you entirely because you say things to which I feel
inclined to reply, and when you do, I reply.
We could take a poll, say, a GR to vote on whether I or you are the
more reprehensible person. The results might be interesting. I'm not
sure it's worth the effort, since you'll still pretend to be the
aggrieved party, even as you are the chief violator of every rule of
civility yet constructed for Debian.
PS to the listmaster: Please let me know if you don't want to receive
anything more from me; I'm only sending to you because Craig decided
to start doing so. I have my doubts about whether you really want
it. Also, please note that Craigs messages are in violation of the
Debian list policy code of conduct.
