I am. I *like* Ubuntu and DW; I would simply appreciate if people
remembered accurately what they're here for. This is not to say that
you did not, Christine, nor that anyone else did not. It's really
just a piece of advocacy that wanted to get out of my fingertips to
the keyboard to the mailer to the Net to you. Sometimes this urge is
just hard to resist. :)

Certainly not.

I *do* need to work on my communication skills. They worked okay in
the Debian world so far. With the advent of DW, I'll have a chance
to practice to do it right without assuming infinite tolerance from
the side of the reader. So, Erinn, this is what you could put down
for me... a learning experience.
