Yes, I do.  He doesn't.

You read the missive, right?  Allow me to summarize: "My copious
contributions to the Cygwin project are my license to behave as childishly
and abusively as I see fit."  That's what's called rationalization.

I thought the cool part was where he said, "Jeez, I *am* an inexplicable
jerk way too often.  I'm going to change my behavior so I don't have to
apologize to people so often."

Oh, right, he didn't say that.

Why would Chris feel the need to apologize for a "joke"?

But the topic of this sub-thread here is OCLA hyperlinks.  What do you think
of my idea that this really belongs as a link under the "CGF" heading?
