Curt, almost everything you write has much sense in the end, but in
this case you are terribly wrong.

Everyone on this list is free - as a human being should be free - to
express his personal opinion (if necessary even on this developer list,
if nobody objects) as long as it is easily obvious to _everyone_
reading this, that it is his very own personal faith. I strongly
believe nobody here intends to stamp on the MacOSX package maintainers
view point, it's just that he chose a medium to carry his opinion that
is totally unacceptable.

I distance myself from the FlightGear project as long as it tolerates
this sort of misuse. Don't get me wrong, I very much tolerate the
_contents_ of the respective text (although I don't share it, but this
is a different story) but I can't accept the way it is being
distributed unter the flag of the FlightGear project.

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
