What if, somebody is not happy about a discussion degraded into personal 
attacks, but feels that the issue at hand was never resolved properly. 
So he sits down and writes as plainly as he can (BTW, notice that Kevin 
is not native English speaker, not trying to imply it is the case here, 
just that we should cut each other some slack ... there are many people 
with ESL in the Fedora project). He feels personally hurt by the 
previous actions, so he writes in quite personal tone. And he is 
immediately shut down, because we have already settled this issue (well, 
we haven't, the discussion was just shut down, but it is convenient to 
pretend we did). How is that being excellent to each other?


He can compress the most words into the smallest idea of any man
I know.
