Well, you are using our mailing lists to publish a list of people's
email addresses.  Furthermore, you are advertising those names under
the title of "Offender".  In passing, I'd note that there are many
reasons a package may fail to build, install, and de-install,
especially on a platform like Linux.

Now this list is not in the standard bulk build output; pkgsrc
developers do not believe it is a productive thing to have.

Your actions are not condoned by pkgsrc developers, and they have
asked you to remove your "Offenders" list. You have refused.

Sounds like an impasse to me - and yet you are abusing the privilege
of posting to our mailing lists.

Perhaps you'd like to re-think your actions?
