the principle is to stay on topic when sending messages to the list.
commenting on your personal site is not this lists topic.

you probably should pay more attentions to standards - if you are
interested in free software. because free software browsers denpends
on standards heavily. making sites non compliant to standards can make
them inaccessible to people using free software (an other  non free
software too). however i do not know if your site is this case. i
didnt check it enough. however Jonathans comment about your site was
very polite and friendly and i do not get why you are so angry about
it. you have the right to do your site in whatever way you choose, its
visitors have the right to comment about it.

and to cite from your own site: "Please feel free to get in contact

there are more graphics professionals on the list. it doesnt mean your
comments are not needed. just do not get angry when there is no reason
for it.

the only abuse is this offtopic conversation without any real reason.
people be please more tolerant to each other.
