That's both insulting and incorrect. Many of the leaders of the Zope 2 community are involved in Zope 3 and using it. These people are application developers.
we native german speakers tend to be much more direct and phrase dings more bluntly the you americans do.
In german I read Maik's statement as a strong opinion but never as an insult.
Since I am the one who asked Mike to speak up I would feel bad if it created any bad feelings.
I would also like to point out that Maik did not post it here himself. It's an opinion directed to a group of people that most likely knows him and his context better than we do on this list.
There is a big difference in how you can talk about, and talk to, other people.
Sometimes you use harder language to emphasize a point. A language that you wouldn't normally use when talking to somebody. Generally there is nothing wrong with this, but seen out of context it can seem inapropriate.
