Hmm, a response to David that:
a) Hints at superiority;
b) Fails to suggest any viable course of resolution;
c) Manages to antagonize one of our best international Linux success stories
d) Alienates one of the longest standing financial supporters of OCLUG
Michael, unless you are significantly contributing more to the Linux
community than Roaring Penguin and David personally, I suggest a public
apology, and then complete silence as a course of action.
