I find that strange given my rational responses to several disagreements on this list and outlaying where I feel misunderstandings have come from. I have also agreed with the points of view of several people but still shared why I came to a different conclusion while still understanding their perspective. Thus, it's difficult to understand why you feel I'm being dismissive.

You blame misunderstandings on trolls instead of genuine disagreement,
you have stated multiple times there's no reason to decline the CT's,
you have denied any problems with licence incompatibility. These aren't
rational responses of someone who accepts that others have differring

> PS -  Your ad hominem attack, while not bad, isn't as piercing as the good old days on the talk@ list. If you go back over that list I'm sure you can find much stronger words than "brat" used. By using those old posts you should be able to construct far more cutting and personal jibes. Perhaps mention my mother, or the size of my genitalia. By doing so, I'm sure you will achieve your goals.

I hate to sound like a third-grader, but you started the ad hominem. I
don't like to do it and I definitely wasn't going for piercing.

8/10. I nearly bit.
