Surely you see the difference between "That's an interesting idea; can you generate some patches so we can take a look and see how it works out?" and "WhereTF is your patch to do this?". One provides an opportunity for users to contribute, and the other is a snarling, rude dismissal that really doesn't do very much to encourage people to stick around and help out. --nat To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
