Oh indeed! I would really like to see the discussion here remain  
polite and constructive, and ad hominems are not part of that. And  
frankly, I'd rather only ever ban spammers, not interesting people who  
happen to lose their temper.

Please relax, please forgive.

It's normal to sometimes get annoyed, even angry, when participating  
in a discussion about a topic you strongly care about, or when someone  
seems to just "not get it". The trick is to NOT hit reply, but instead  
go for a walk. Get some fresh air. The world (and this mailing-list)  
will be a much better place if we try and avoid acting like jerks.

On a lighter note: "I'm right and you're an idiot" Named Official  
Slogan of the Internet
(spoof news about w3c, which made me smile)

Thanks all for participating in this forum.
