To John Doue and even Robert Kaiser: Even in the military you did NOT
get away with being arrogant and rude for very long, of that I can tell
you. You, Robert Kaiser, started off the insults with your own
statements and I, I am afraid, got a little carried away because of the
WAY you made those statements!!!! I despise arrogance, rudeness and
insults, even when I make any, but, if my Blood pressure and
hypertension are roused, I do get upset. I must admit that, obviously,
Mr. Kaiser, YOU DID LISTEN to what I wrote or you would not have
responded to it! Alright, I am willing to wait and see if you finally
get a decent product finished, and, ironically I am a long time user of
Netscape before I moved to Seamonkey, with the hopes of maybe getting
something I could learn and use for a long time to come!
    Also, I will not do/write anything more, until I see what the final
product is, and whether Ed Mullen or Peter Potamus and John Doue can say
it really is an IMPROVEMENT or not! I ask, Mr. Kaiser, that you learn to
rephrase how you say what you say, and stop acting as if everybody owes
you a living, since you DID VOLUNTEER for this!
