That other people don't have a 9 line counting footer and are not official Gentoo developers does not say they are so much different from you or stupid. You called me selfish, childish and a M$ lover... Well... I'm a squatter, I try to live anarchistic and I do not prejudge people. And if I disagree... I certainly do not say things that go straight against the subject in discussion and break the social Gentoo rules on offending other people. I think you ow me a apology.
