What are you on, and why haven't you been charged with an indictable 
offense for possesion of it yet?

It's *our* Open Source. It belongs to the devs and cpw's. Open Source 
does NOT equal 'owned by every person on the planet'. You have the right 
to contribute, you have the right to demand we do every single user 
whim. The authors have the right to evaluate and make decisions. How 
about some respect here?

Go read ticket 414, like I'm sure you've already been told. I'd tell you 
to get a grip, but I can see you've already got a firm hold.

Feel free to send ill formed abuse anytime without constructively 
contributing, as we deeply appreciate that. In case you weren't aware, 
it really helps any Open Source project.<sarcasm/>
