That attitude, were it viral, would ensure things don't get done.  I think 
you need a thicker skin, as these are just emails, and evolt.org has 
survived stronger discussions than this.  If you want to contribute, do so, 
but do so in a constructive and learned manner, don't just dive in and 
assume a lot of stuff.

There is an admittedly huge corpus of knowledge in theforum's archive which 
needs to be grokked in order to not have to assume stuff, but a cursory 
glance over the most recent stuff should have sufficed, and would have 
probably led to a lot less stick than you've endured the last few days for 
some misplaced comments.

Stick around - I for one want this new box to go live sooner rather than 
later so that I can hack on a new backend for beo and get our own nameserver 
up and running (amongst other stuff).
