Again I ask, what "maligning" would you and others be referring to? If I
have in any way "maligned" anybody, I demand the opportunity to "un-malign"

In his latest statement on the topic,
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-talk/2005-q2/msg00279.html, he mentions nothing
about "fun". In fact he claims there's a sort of 'grand design' to his
"As it turns out, for the most part, the way that I conduct myself provides
me with the results that I want. [...] Other people who want to change
things but don't have a clear idea about what they want to do and only know
that they are angry because I'm not nice to them, and won't give their
half-formed thoughts the consideration they know they deserve, eventually go
away. Which is exactly what I want to happen."
Frankly, I'd prefer the "fun" explanation. Unfortunately, I've been around
long enough that I can believe neither.

Nobody is discussing such posts, not me anyway. Why do you and some others
(one other?) believe any of this chronic issue is related to pointing people
to web pages? I truly don't follow.
Since the rest of your post is based on this erroneous premise, I shall
refrain from further comment.
