So, Michele, I asked you last week who specifically on ilug at linux.ie was
(in your words) "shooting down Lars in flames" -- and you didn't reply
in any way. Would you mind answering that question, along with
detailing what specific display of rudeness you are referring to, above?
I might not have seen the list mail you have in mind.
All I remember seeing was Lars inquiring after Microsoft Exchange Server
experts, and, perhaps not entirely surprisingly, given that this is a
Linux mailing list, apparently not finding any. Mention was made
somewhere along the way of him _also_ needing Linux help, so I
volunteered to assist (if possible) when he got around to articulating
his needs, but -- surprisingly -- that never happened either.
Now, I have to admit to, in my off moments, having a nasty, cynical mind,
leading me to suspect that "shooting down Lars in flames" and "downright
ignorance and rudeness" refer to the gentleman being reminded, quite
humourously and gently, that this isn't a Microsoft Exchange mailing
list. Would my surmise be correct, or am I missing something?
Cheers, Ceterum censeo, Caldera delenda est.
