Certainly your comments were not meant to be enlightening on the
subjects we have been discussing, but directed at me, to get your
feelings of anger off your chest.  You would have served the discussion
better had they been something constructive and useful.

If you had actually been keeping up with the thread, you would know
everyone does know what we are all talking about.  Columns, text frames
and ease of use software.  Hopefully that will bring you up to date too.

I would be interested as to how you've been on a list for several years
that hasn't existed several years?  I won't try to figure that one out.

There's no argument about the grade of most of the people that hang out
on this list and the IRC channel.  Most are knowledgeable and more than
capable of the things they do.  That's never been in question here,
unless you are questioning it?  The discussion has not been about tone,
but Scribus, note above for the subject matter.  Understand this about
me, if something doesn't feel right, look right or work right, expect me
to speak out about it.  I've tried to be civil about the whole thing
with everybody that acts civil.  Become rude and expect me to be rude
back, because I won't be bullied here or personally.
