Possibly, but can you point out the little problem here ? I guess we
have two problems :

  - the original problem between frans and me.

  - the 'email flood' problem.

so, i suppose your mail hints at the 'email flood' problem being the
biggest one, because it is hard to ignore, and the original problem
being only a minor issue, because it can be ignored by most, and could
be forgotten if i chose to be silent about it.

Does this summarize your point ? And if so, can you point to the
consequences of both these problems ?
