Guys, this is getting out of hand. All three messages in this thread were
over the top, and a step back would be healthy at this point. Please assume
that everyone involved here is a reasonable person, and that the origin of
this disagreement lies in miscommunication: Rui assumed Carlos saw the
(extensive) original thread and wasn't letting it die, and most likely Carlos
never saw the thread and now feels unfairly accused. I certainly missed the
original thread myself, and was a bit taken aback by Rui's reply until I
managed to dig it up and see more context. Continuing the discussion any
further would be unproductive, in this light. So, please, give it a rest.
