My apology in the cygwin list came after my response to Ed, when I
subsequently realized that FlightGear was not a commercial entity asking
for free technical support -- as I had been implying.  I'm sorry that my
meandering email somehow gave you the idea that not caring what some
people thought about my email style would equate to never offering an
apology when I think I've done something wrong.  That is not the case.

I don't think I have been sending many meandering rationalizations about
my behavior but, thanks for the heads up.  I'd already made a vow to
myself not to do that again any time soon but your observation has
reinforced my resolve.

That is not to say that I won't defend myself if the need arises but
I'll try to forego any further meandering explications of my personal
philosophy even if they do seem to be de rigueur for free software
project leads these days.

Hmm.  Maybe I need a blog.
