Very correct, and my own previous comments too. It was certainly said
in a moment of frustration. I'm sorry.

I do have a sense though that defending freedom of speech is an
exception to the communication model- expecially where we are
talking about Free Software (Free as in Free Speech, not Free Beer).

I would like to _ask_, that for the benefit of the atmosphere around
NetBSD, that where possible, people treat each other in a pleasant
manner. If you feel the need to insult someone, at least do so directly.
(i.e. privately)

Happy Holidays, and may we have a new year of pro-social NetBSD
