Perhaps, but that's neither here nor there. If you don't like the term
"persecution complex", how would you describe such a thought process then?
I recall nobody ever suggesting that "99.99% of the people in the cygwin
community [..] hate [your] guts". What I do recall is a significant number
of people taking issue with your abusive behavior on the mailing lists (what
you refer to in your missive as, IIRC, "one or two"). That's not the
persecution you take it to be, that's factual.
What a way to start this day! Ladies and gentemen, here we have the
live episode of the ranting, maligning,
rants-against-abusive-behaviour-discussions on the cygwin-talk list.
Aside from Lionel B., I would have to declare that this thread is again
getting to be enjoyable!
CGF *doesn't* need to change. IIRC, cgf says he writes the way he
writes because it's fun. I really still can't believe that some take
the cygwin meanness very seriously to the point of being concerned
about the behaviour of cgf. Really!
The cygwin list has become a list where where the cygwin gurus have set
the culture of letting people learn to help themselves first before
anything else. That's the reason for the thousands of times when
postings are answered with "go to "http://cygwin.com/problems.html" or
"goto http://cygwin.com/lists.html", or, with a pointer to the correct
list. In that way, people are taught to help themselves first before
wasting other people's time. You've all known that adage "Give a man a
fish! You feed him for a day. Teach the man to fish! You feed him for
life." Teaching men to fish, IMHO, is what cgf has been trying to do.
He has his own style of doing it and his style is mean. But this
meanness is just a matter of style. It is not evil. It would take a
certain maturity level on the cygwin list (e.g. someone probably needs
to have been subscribed to the list for a year or so) for anyone to
understand that this meanness is style and a humorous style and not a
lack maturity .
If someone does not see this meanness as a unique way of being humorous,
IMHO, this someone has not been mature enough to understood the cygwin
mailing list. Thus, if all these
cgf-is-abusive-and-has-to-change-blah-blah-blah talk is taken very
seriously, I must concede that all this is in the mind.
And, if anyone really really takes the meannness seriously, he has to
probably step back and get a good meta view of the whole issue ;)
Hmmm, if I took all these seriously, I would say:
CGF, YOU'RE MEAN, YOU'RE NUTS, YOU GOTTA CHANGE. WHY DO YOU ACT THAT
WAY? WHY WHY WHY? CAN'T YOU BEHAVE FOR ONCE IN THIS FREAKING MAILING
LIST? AREN'T YOU CONCERNED THAT PEOPLE ARE GETTING CONCERNED WITH YOUR
BEHAVIOUR???? WHY DON'T YOU ANSWER NOW AND AND NOT AVOID THE ISSUE.
YOU ARE AFRAID, YOU CGF. AREN'T YOU? I GUESS YOU ARE. CGF,
EVILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, WEEEEEEEEEEEE, WE BETTER GET SCARED!!!!!!!!. CGF
IS HERE TO HAUNT US FOEVER........WAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH......
