Legitimate, granted. But I was hurt by the way he has put things.
Imagine how it is to have a blog with almost 2,900 posts written by me since
Aug. 12, 2005. This makes an average of 4.6 posts/day. From the 4,230
comments posted by readers over the time, some of them were very offensive
(hundreds), but just figure it that I had to reject hundreds of _very_
offensive comments.

I must be tired and writing such a polemical `feature' (essay) in 3 days was
exhausting. I was then very much surprised to see that the most coherent
attack (on both me and Jem -- `The sorry state of The Jem Report', remember?)
is coming from a FreeBSD developer.

Well, with or without the Flash agreement, 99.999% of the users will find
their way.
