I think you may be missing the point of Duncan's reply.  My point is, 
when someone doesn't want someone with a different way of looking at 
things to post on this list, they tell them to go to -project.  They 
seem to think that some people are stupid and won't realize that what 
they are really saying is to "go away" and/or "shut up".  Thing is, some 
people are actually smart enough to see what is going on and what that 
means.   They sometimes go away, far away.

Then some people wonder why, just why, Gentoo has the reputation that it 
does.  I don't wonder myself.  I figured that out a good long while ago.
