Eric: you aren't getting it. As of this recent "spat", you have *no*
credibility on this list. Seriously. Discussions that have occurred off-list
confirms this.

As Lee pointed out, we just don't care. Your insistence on "truth" only
serves to dig your own grave deeper. But don't be mistaken: you've dug that
grave and jumped in.

I like you as a person, Eric, and respect some of the things you have done
elsewhere, but your behavior on this list is simply atrocious. It even came
up today whether we should close up the mailing list to just committers and
people sending patches, simply to keep this drivel away.

Further, I have been more impressed with Larry's posts than your own. Larry
has been even-headed and has only lightly touched on being personal. Yours,
on the other hand, are flat out rude, flaming, and inciteful. I mean,
really, "grounds to sue him for libel." Just shut the fuck up about crap
like that on this list. It has ZERO place, Eric.

Talk about Subversion, or don't post. Period.
