What the fuck, sir.  Please, please take this to a phone call with Tara
to talk this out, or just leave it alone.  This is absolutely not the
face that evolt.org should be showing, ever, never mind at a time when
we're supposed to be getting ready to celebrate.

Seriously, stop this.  By all means, continue other discussions with
decorum, but if you reply to Tara or anyone else like this again, I'll
boot you off theforum mailing list, professionalism be damned

If you, Martin, have something to say about what I've said above, stop,
breathe, count to 10, and if you still feel the same way, call me;
either you or Lucy should still have my mobile number, it's not changed.
